A Call for Viola Desmond Day
PC MLA Eddie Orrell
You may have seen in the Halifax Chronicle Herald that Cape Breton PC MLA Eddie Orrell will be asking the Nova Scotia Legislature to declare the holiday Viola Desmond Day.
Viola Desmond was a beauty care product salesperson and she stopped in a movie theatre in New Glasgow on one of her business trips. Because she was an african Nova Scotian, she was asked to move from her seat. She did not.
Her case is dicsussed and celebrated in Nova Scotia as a breakthough in the civil rights struggle in this province.
