Every day, men, women and children risk their lives to cross into Canada on foot from the U.S.

In support of the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council (MIIC), join us for the screening of the award winning documentary "The Crossing", by George Kurian, recounting the perilous journey of Syrian asylum seekers to the EU.
