CBC* Quebec: These are the Black Changemakers.

* Canadian Broadcasting Corporation


'Guedwig Bernier says he took a "leap of faith" when he decided to join Projet Montréal in 2018.


Bernier, now Projet Montréal's president, said it took time, trust and hard work to make history last fall when the party won a new mandate.

Gracia Kasoki Katahwa was elected mayor in Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, a first for a Black woman in any Montreal borough.

Two other Black candidates elected to city council, Dominique Ollivier and Martine Musau Muele, respectively sit as chair of the executive committee and city council speaker — also firsts for the city.'

There's more text and photos at the link. The CBC also provides access to a few of
their regular features during their celebration of Black History Month.
