On Friday December 21, Toronto Mayor Art Eggleton proclaimed December 23 to 29 Respect for Life Week in Toronto.

Noting that Aid to Women is marking that week as Respect for Life week in Toronto, the Public Notice goes on to say that this reflects, “the true Christmas spirit of sharing and celebration of life.”

The proclamation continues, “City Council and the people of Toronto are in the forefront of efforts to establish a caring and compassionate society.  Such a society recognizes the inherent dignity of all its members and strive for freedom, justice and peace for everyone.”

Aid to Women, a non-profit organization that serves the needs of women in Toronto applied some weeks ago for a Respect Life Week in Toronto.
