Question of Baha’i persecution subject of address

Tracing its origins to Persia, the Baha’i faith emphasizes unity, a common source for all religions, and an elimination of all forms of discrimination, but its adherents have experienced persecution throughout history.

In a public presentation Thursday, June 22, John Cappucci, Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair in Religion and Conflict at Assumption University, will discuss the results of his survey on how Iranian Canadians in Ontario perceive the treatment of Baha’is in Iran.

The event, “A Minority Affair: The Baha’i Question and Iranian Canadians,” is free and open to all. It begins at 7 p.m. at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Hall, 4401 Mt. Royal Dr.
