The Toronto/Hamilton conference scheduled for July 18-19 has been cancelled due to several factors. The World Health Organization, is advising “people postpone all non-essential travel to Toronto.” In addition to official warnings, many attendees have expressed anxiety about the various aspects of travel (i.e., lack of dining, lodging, and transportation options). For our attendees’ safety and to ease their concerns, Women of Faith felt there was no other choice but to cancel this event.
Actually, I can’t blame them. It’s not their fault that the whole thing was overblown. The funniest story I heard today was that a faith healer cancelled a trip to Toronto. That’s so funny it’s got to be true.
