Dear Canadians and Friends of Canada,

Prime Minister Trudeau reaffirmed that no matter who we love or how we identify, all of us deserve to feel safe and secure, live free from discrimination and persecution, and express ourselves fully.

We must continue to fight against homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia, and to defend gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation rights.  I am personally committed to fight hatred, honour love, and defend human rights for all.

It is in this spirit that I would like to invite you to join me to march together in the  San Francisco Pride parade on Sunday June 24th.

Please note the link here for the invitation/RSVP.  Please forward to your Canadian friends!

https://sfpride2018canadamexico.eventbrite.com

The march will begin around 11:00am, at the Embarcadero, and will end at San Francisco City Hall, at around 14:00.  Please join me, and together, we can build a world where all of us are free to be who we are and love who we love.

Dress comfortably, colourfully, bring your friends, family, your dogs…and your bottle of water.  The exact departure point will be communicated very soon – look for Canadian rainbow flags.

For the first time this year, we will be joining the Mexican Consulate as a demonstration of North American solidarity!

Looking forward to meeting you!

October 30: Toronto Maple Leafs vs. San Jose Sharks

Hosted By: Digital Moose Lounge

Cheer on the Leafs as they take on the Sharks with a group of Canadians and the Digital Moose Lounge. Hailed as “the return of Patrick Marleau” and the only time we’ll see the Leafs in regular season play this year, this game is one not to be missed!

Our block of tickets is sold out but we welcome other ticket holders joining us before the game at San Pedro Square Market from 5:30pm. It has 20+ different food and drink vendors, so there should be something for everyone. Look for Canadian flags and Leafs gear!

November 15-18: The Daisy Theatre, Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes at Stanford

Hosted By: Stanford Live

—————

Don’t bring the kiddies to puppeteer Ronnie Burkett’s rather ribald, thoroughly entertaining Daisy Theatre. Burkett, who hails from Alberta, Canada, became interested in puppets as a child, when he picked up Volume P of the World Book and it fell open at “puppets.” Burkett is a one-man show, improvising on the spot. His marionettes—a rotating cast of 40 characters—include ventriloquist Meyer Lemon, actress Lillian Lunkhead, and Edna Rural. Advisory: chance of puppet nudity.

—————

Tickets $15-$50.

In residence November 15-18.
Bing Concert Hall Studio
327 Lasuen Street
