Development and Peace for their fall campaign "International Development - Do it Justice."
Deborah Gyapong explains the newest campaign from the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace called “International Development - Do It Justice:”
“International development assistance should be a priority and concern for all Canadians, especially Catholics,” said the statement from Edmonton Archbishop Richard Smith and CCODP National Council president Ron Breau.

According to the CCCB website, the statement also seeks to “respond to possible misunderstandings” that arose out of the delay of this year’s campaign.

“You are aware that changes have been made to the campaign material. Speculation in the media and among some of the membership as to the reasons for the changes has caused considerable anxiety for many,” the statement said. “We want to assure you there is no cause for worry.”
