Media Advisory: Mayor David Miller joining celebration of peace at Nathan Phillips Square
  
The public is invited to join Mayor David Miller at the "Celebration of Peace
in the City" on Sunday, September 19 outside Toronto City Hall. This event,
organized by the Multi-Faith Peace Garden Coalition (which consists of more
than 20 faith communities in the Greater Toronto Area), will mark the 20th
anniversary of the creation of the Peace Garden on Nathan Phillips Square.

Date: Sunday, September 19
Time: Noon to 6 p.m. (Mayor Miller will speak at approximately 12:25 p.m.)
Place: Nathan Phillips Square, 100 Queen St. W.

The Peace Garden was created in 1984 as a reminder of the nuclear horror that
engulfed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, and the necessity of striving for
peace and harmony.

The celebration will feature performances of spiritual music and dance from
many faiths and cultures, a prayer ceremony and speeches by Mayor David Miller,
Reverend Massey Lombardi and Hiroshima survivor Setsuko Thurlow.
