The Respect Life Office would like to bring to your attention to a serious threat to the right to life in Canada of the elderly, disabled and dying.

On November 14, 2011, the Carter vs. Attorney General of Canada court case began. Kay Carter committed suicide at the Dignitas euthanasia “clinic” in Switzerland. Gloria Taylor lives in BC with ALS. The BC Civil Liberties Association has brought this case to court on behalf of Carter and Taylor to establish a so-called “right” to euthanasia and assisted suicide. If they win, the court ruling will legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide in Canada. Please check out the website for more information www.epcbc.ca

If you have e-mail access you can sign the petition at http://www.euthanasiaprevention.on.ca/signonline.htm and those without can sign on Dec 3/4 at the back of the church at the 5pm Masses or at the Pancake Breakfast at the 9 & 11 Masses.

Reverend and dear Father:

I am writing to ask you to actively promote the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace’s (CCODP) fall action campaign entitled: “The Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor.”

The success of CCODP relies to a great degree on the cooperation of the priests of the Archdiocese. Without your active promotion, CCODP’s efforts would bear little fruit.

Across the Archdiocese, this year’s fall action campaign will take place on Sunday, November 13. You can contribute to the success of this educational initiative by assisting your parish’s CCODP group or, if none exists, by encouraging other organizations; for example, the CWL or Knights of Columbus to undertake the campaign.

Parishioners wanting to form a group or who would like more information should contact Mr. John Gabor at jgabor@devp.org, 604.864.6383.

With cordial best wishes and the assurance of my prayers, I remain, Fraternally yours in Christ,

J. Michael Miller, CSB
