  October 22 :: Human Approaches to World Peace with His Holiness the Dalai Lama


In today’s modern world, science and technology play vital roles in bringing unprecedented material comfort to the lives of human beings. However, the basic human problems of suffering, fear and tension still remain and form part of our daily lives. We are still constantly confronted with devastating news such as violence, crime, wars and natural disasters. Thus, it is only logical to try to strike a balance between material developments on the one hand and the development of spiritual, human values on the other hand. In order to bring about this great adjustment, we need to revive our humanitarian values. His Holiness will share his personal outlook on how we may bring about peace not only on a personal level but at the community and world wide level.

Dates: Friday, October 22 @ 2:00 PM
Venue: Rogers Centre, Toronto, Ontario

  Bring the British North America Act back to Canada for display

is national, grassroots movement launched by a group of Canadians from all walks of life. It is asking Canadians to support a petition to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the British government to return to Canada the British North America Act – Canada’s *original* Constitution – in time for its 150th anniversary celebrations in Charlottetown 2014, and Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.

The campaign is the brainchild of Lori Abittan, President and CEO of Multimedia Nova Corporation. Her 52-week Canadian civic literacy/history series The Canadian Experience (http://www.cdnexperience.ca) now running in over 70 multicultural publications (including the Oye Times!), was the inspiration to launch BringBackTheAct.ca to invite all Canadians to help gain access to the basic documents which are the foundation of our nationhood. To enable such historical documents to be entrusted to the Canadian Government and displayed for all Canadians to see will represent the last step Canada takes to finally ‘repatriate’ our Constitution.

Click HERE to sign the petition. It only takes one minute.
