TORONTO, June 20, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Race Relations Foundation
(CRRF) will be speaking at the World Peace and Prayer Day in Winnipeg.
Rubin Friedman, Spokesperson for CRRF noted:
While CRRF work and activities are limited to issues in Canada, World
Peace and Prayer Day has many laudable goals consistent with our
It reminds us of the importance of the value of peace for all human
beings. That it will take place during the Summer solstice of the
Northern Hemisphere emphasizes its universality. It calls on those of
faith to pray for what is for the good of all and it encourages all,
whether believers or not, to hope for what we all aspire to. In
Canada, we have the opportunity to bring people of many faiths and
origins together to make this a land of peace where all participate in,
contribute to, and benefit from its cultural and economic wealth.
That it takes place on National Aboriginal Day in Canada and in an
important historical site for all Plains Aboriginal peoples, helps us
to promote awareness of the important role Aboriginal peoples have
played in this country and to recall that mutual agreements with
Aboriginal peoples are a fundamental element of our constitution.
Ultimately, achieving peace in Canada requires us together to respect
this basic value and find the best ways to put it into action.
