December 10 is Human Rights Day — the day in 1948 when the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Declaration says that each person is entitled to certain fundamental rights: the right to life; liberty; equality; and security. It also recognizes the right to freedom of religion and speech and the right to participate in the cultural life of the community. Within the Métis Nation of Ontario, we are proud to share these values and celebrate this important day.
