Richmond Hill Declares Emancipation Day August 1st

I am pleased to report that the Richmond Hill Council unanimously proclaimed August 1st Emancipation Day in Richmond Hill. This proclamation is an important step in our journey toward one of the Council Strategic Priorities 2020-2022 identified, “a strong sense of belonging”.
