"Dr. King's legacy - the gift he left for us - is to celebrate and live values such as equality, acceptance and justice." Dr. King represents to millions a beacon of good citizenship. He championed peaceful protest in the pursuit of a world without injustice, where everyone is equal and differences are celebrated. "We have the opportunity, here in Ontario, to demonstrate that Dr. King's dream of a world where people of many cultures, races, creeds and backgrounds live in harmony, can be a reality," said Colle.
