The B.C. Catholic has a story from Praire Messenger reporter Kiply Lukan Yaworski about a group of students fasting to raise awareness about the global south:
Students took a page from tradition, from saints, and from historical figures such as Gandhi as they joined in fasting, prayer, and study of social justice concerns.

The Thinkfast event, held March 22-23 at the Cathedral of the Holy Family in Saskatoon, was envisioned by the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace.
