On May 28, 2009, Commissioners William and Marilyn Francis, territorial leaders, attended the 44th Annual National Prayer Breakfast in Ottawa. More than 850 leaders of all faiths and political persuasions gathered together in a spirit of meditation and prayer for themselves and the nation.
According to the organizers, “The Breakfast serves as a quiet demonstration that men and women in positions of responsibility place a high priority on spiritual values.”
The speaker at this year’s breakfast was the distinguished lecturer and renowned Christian philosopher and apologist, Dr. Ravi Zacharias. Many Members of Parliament were in attendance.
