The B.C. Catholic has another story from Edmonton's March for Life rally. Chris Miller, reporter for the Western Catholic Reporter, details the Mass for Life celebrated by Archbishop Richard Smith of Edmonton, and president of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops:
A conscience that’s active, alert and is properly formed will never justify the killing of an innocent life, said Archbishop Richard Smith.

In a homily at the May 17 Mass for Life at St. Joseph’s Basilica, Smith urged those present to pray for the sanctity of human life in all stages and in all circumstances.
