This past December, the Consulate General of Canada hosted a group exhibition in Dubai’s foremost arts hub, Alserkal Avenue, as part of the Canada 150 program.

On behalf of OCAD University, I offer deep condolences to the Baptiste/Boushie family and the people of Red Pheasant Reserve, and mourn the loss of a young man described by his mother as gentle and optimistic. We agree with Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould when she says “Canada must do better.”
