The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) is part of a delegation in Mexico this week, studying the impact of free trade children, women and indigenous peoples.
Bishop Daniel Bohan, auxiliary bishop of Toronto, and a member of the CCCB Commission for Social Affairs are among the nine delegates on this mission, organized by KAIROS, a Canadian ecumenical organization that brings churches together around social justice issues, and partner organizations in Mexico.
The mission will consider alternatives and develop concrete recommendations that will be made to the Canadian government.
The delegates have meetings scheduled from March 11 to March 19, with human rights organizations, churches, labor unions, indigenous groups and women’s organizations.
