VANCOUVER’S ‘JUNETEENTH’ MARCH ORGANIZER CROWNED MISS UNIVERSE CANADA (VIDEO)
Vancouver’s “Juneteenth” march organizer Nova Stevens has been crowned Miss Universe Canada 2020.

“Yes, I want you to see colour–because seeing colour does not mean you’re a racist. Instead, it allows you to see the struggles experienced by people of colour,” said Stevens.
“You’ve heard the news, you’ve read the stories. Innocent black lives have been lost to police brutality and hate crime. We want you to see us. We want you to hear us. We want you to feel us.” READ MORE
