St. Albert rallies around family threatened by racist letter

 

The people of St. Albert, Alta., are determined to shake off the stain of a racist letter aimed at an Indigenous family.

The family is still planning to move after receiving the angry message in their mailbox.

But the mayor and a small business owner are doing what they can to get them to stay.

Including hosting a block party on Oct. 28 in a show of solidarity, support and celebration.
