Mr. Speaker, last Sunday, more than 400 people of various religious denominations gathered at the Canadian Museum of Hindu Civilization for the inauguration ceremony of the Wall of Peace.
This new and unique monument contrasts a chronology of war and conflict with those who stood apart by striving for justice without violence.
The Wall of Peace is the vision of Dr. Budhendra Doobay and Navin Chandaria.
These individuals have inspired a fleet of supporters, including leading business and community leader Michael Lee-Chin and peace advocate Dr. Deepak Chopra who spoke at the opening.
I commend the founders for raising this monument to those who scaled the walls of human conflict to rise above the centuries and become our icons of peace.
Congratulations to all.
