Right now, I live on Kanien’kehá:ka territory, very close to the American border, where thousands of refugees cross every month to be arrested by the RCMP, in hopes that they will be able to live safely, within these borders. Last night as I fell asleep, I heard my neighbours celebrating, setting off their Canada Day fireworks. A few hours later, I was awoken by a thunderstorm that was 1000 times more powerful, complex, awe-inspiring than the fireworks. I don’t know what it means but that’s my Canada Day reflection.
