The Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace is taking steps to ensure it hears from its members prior to a major national orientation assembly taking place June 19. Orientation assemblies take place every few years to discuss issues that are at the heart of its work, CCODP says in a statement, including "the challenges of international development and the impact of public awareness campaigns." Presumably that includes last year's well publicized controversy about partner agencies whose respect for life in the womb is non-existent. Delegates representing CCODP members from every part of Canada will be able to post notes and comments on the new blog, and the 12,000 CCODP members will be able to post their own comments and reactions to the issues being discussed. The address of the orientation assembly’s bilingual blog is: ao-oa2010.blogspot.com. The last CCODP orientation assembly was in 2006.
