The Birth of Southern Sudan

Southern Sudan Referendum - Toronto, Ontario

Starting Sunday, January 9th, 2011, Southern Sudanese have journeyed from throughout Eastern Canada and the Northeast United States to vote on a referendum to either stay unified as one Sudan or secede and become a new nation, Southern Sudan. Canada was designated as a country with a large population of people descending from Southern Sudan. With a strong Southern Sudanese diaspora present, two voting centres were designated, one in Calgary and one in Toronto. The voting will take place for one week. When the polls close on January 15, 2011, the country has 30 days to announce the results of the referendum.

My buddy Marco and I trooped up to the York-Weston Community Centre this past Sunday and found well, pure positive loves...
