discussion, and a town hall session that will allow members of the audience to

sister stations are committed to the exploration of belief and its impact on
the lives of Canadians. In this election campaign, issues of critical
importance to our country and future generations are in play, and we hope to
contribute to the public understanding of these by examining them in the
larger context of faith, spirituality and ethics."
