CITY OF DUNCAN
FALUN DAFA MONTH
HONOURING TRUTHFULNESS, COMPASSION & FORBEARANCE
Whereas, Falun Dafa is an advanced exercise and meditation practice of mind, body, and spirit that has brought health and well-being to people across Canada;
And Whereas, Falun Dafa practitioners practice the principle of truthfulness-compassion-forbearance and incorporate it into their daily lives, striving to become better people in all environments and situations;
And Whereas, Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa is to be commended and publicly recognized for his commitment to promoting better health and moral living throughout the world;
And Whereas, the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners represents a severe example of the violation of human rights and civil liberties;
Whereas, Falun Dafa practitioners from across Canada will gather to hold the 2007 Canada Experience Sharing Conference in Toronto this May, and communities across Canada will hold public celebrations of Falun Dafa Month;
Now Therefore, I, Mayor Phil Kent, do hereby proclaim May 2007 to be Falun Dafa Month in the City of Duncan, honouring truthfulness, compassion and forbearance.
