Supporters of Equal Protection for Children
This Statement is a major moment for the churches. Advocating reconciliation and child protection,
the Statement makes a progressive and positive contribution to both.
In that, it is prophetic and urgent.
- The Right Reverend Mark MacDonald, National Indigenous Bishop, Anglican Church of Canada
Calls for an end to physical punishment of children, and for their full legal protection, are growing louder across Canada and around the world. The voices of people of faith and Indigenous communities are increasingly being heard. Here, we come together to call for a new era in which children know that all adults will protect and nurture them, without fear or pain.
