Advocating for religion in a pluralistic society and in Canadian public life

On Faith and Science

Early in November 2017, a story broke regarding remarks that Her Excellency Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, made at the Canadian Science Policy Convention in Ottawa. Of concern were disparaging comments about people who believe a number of things, including “divine intervention” in the origins of life. A letter from the Canadian Interfaith Conversation invited Ms. Payette to "meet with leaders of faith communities in Canada - including respected scientists - who profess a variety of religious beliefs, many of whom are also strong advocates for climate justice." 

Conversations about the relationships between faith and science are of ongoing interest to members of the Canadian Interfaith Conversation - email us at info@interfaithconversation.ca if you'd like to participate.
