Individuals and interested groups are invited to make up to 5 minute presentations on the Bill to local peace commissioners, Dr. Anne Pearson, Dr. Gary Warner and Dr. Graeme MacQueen. Also attending is Scarborough-Agincourt Member of Parliament Jim Karygiannis, a co-sponsor of the Bill.

On Nov. 30, 2011, peace advocates Alex Atamanenko (NDP MP, B.C.-Southern Interior), Green Party leader Elizabeth May and Mr. Karygiannis introduced a Private Member’s Bill in the House of Commons to create a federal Department of Peace. Bill C-373 is a comprehensive piece of legislation that will enable Canada to develop a new architecture for peace-building, both domestically and internationally. It will significantly affect government’s approach to conflict issues and shape a new paradigm for waging peace in our world.
