The public was invited to become politically active in the struggle against abortion at the Lifetour gathering in Thunder Bay on the evening of October 7. The event took place at Urban Abbey, a former protestant church, on Red River Road. Lifetour, which features pro-life speakers supported by volunteers, is on a 20-stop tour across Canada. It began in Moncton on September 23 and will end in Vancouver on October 17. Their goal is to influence the upcoming federal election with the long-term goal of making abortion illegal in Canada.
