Rona Ambrose, Interim Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and Leader of the Official Opposition, issued the following statement on 10th anniversary of Global Dignity Day:
“October 12th is the 10th anniversary of Global Dignity Day, a worldwide movement that encourages young people to lead lives of mutual respect and dignity.
Today, thousands of young people across Canada will be among the 500,000 students around the world learning to express what dignity means to them, and how the people around them shape their own sense of personal dignity and self-respect.
I was pleased to offer my support to Global Dignity Day as a National Role Model in 2013. After a decade of outreach, this movement has touched over 1.5 million young people around the world, and will bring the message to many more in the years ahead.
I invite Canadians to join in today’s celebration of Global Dignity Day, and to encourage themselves and others to treat every day as an opportunity to live with dignity and mutual respect.”
