Join CUPE Ontario and Whitfield Belasco’s Concept Costume Creators to celebrate Toronto Carnival on August 5, 2017! Around the world, Carnival celebrations began as part of the struggle for emancipation. They were a way for enslaved Africans to assert their dignity and humanity in a society where they were prohibited from other forms of expression. This year, as part of the 50th anniversary of Toronto’s Carnival, CUPE Ontario is asking each Local to encourage member participation in Carnival, and for larger Locals to sponsor members to attend this important cultural event.
