The Rt Revd Sue Moxley, the Suffragan (assistant) Bishop of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, is one of a seven-member national delegation of Canadian church leaders and lay people currently in Mexico.
The nine-day visit (March 11-19) initiated by KAIROS, Canada's largest ecumenical organization, is meant to assess the economic, political, social, and cultural consequences of trade liberalization in Mexico; and to look at the future by developing concrete policy recommendations.
Other members of the delegation are; Bishop Raymond Schultz, national bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, Bishop Daniel Bohan, auxiliary bishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, Father Paul Hansen, Redemptorist Catholic priest and chair of the KAIROS Board, the Revd J Mark Lewis, former moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, Sister Sheila Moss, of the Sisters of Saint Ann, and Wanda West, member of the Union United Church in Montreal.
The delegation will visit Northern Mexico (Ciudad Juarez) and Southern Mexico (Chiapas). Upon their return, the delegates will bring their concerns to Parliament Hill in April during the Global Week of Action on Trade.
The delegation is sending daily reports on their experiences.
