OUR CHILDREN DESERVE BETTER

The Systematic Denial and Violation of Human Rights: The Government of British Columbia’s Vulgar Stance on Public Education

an open letter to the Government of British Columbia & Premier Christy Clark
by Mani Amar

 

September 2nd, 2014

Dear Premier,

I hope this letter finds you well.

My name is Mani Amar and I write to you today with respect and the intent that the merit of this letter is not lost or dismissed by you or the members of your cabinet. This letter is not intended to incite further discord between us, the people I write for, and you, the government, but to instead evoke a level of intellectual and emotional understanding.

I have been a proud Canadian for as long as I can remember. I was proud of what Canada stood for and how it stood for those who could not stand by themselves. Through my travels, I have asked many people from many walks of life, “If I could give you a chance to live anywhere, where would you choose?” The answer always came back the same, “Canada.”

About Me
In self-reflection; I can honestly say all that is good in my life has been a direct result of my artistic expression. Be it through writing poetry, prose, or philosophy, through painting or photography, or through filmmaking, art saved my life and it can save yours.
