WHEREAS, raising and increasing awareness of the basic Human Value of truth, right conduct, peace, love and non-violence, as well as all the multiple sub values like honesty, integrity, kindness and caring in the City of Thunder Bay is a primary goal of this wonderful city; and

WHEREAS, these values are inherent in all creeds, countries, cultures and communities, making these values truly Values without Boarders; and

WHEREAS, making the City of Thunder Bay a ‘City of Character’ is for the greatest benefit of all our citizens; and

WHEREAS, reducing and even erasing in incidents of violence of all types in our communities and our City will bring peace and progress in all aspects and activities of this city; and

WHEREAS, unlike other walks, Walk for Values in not a fundraiser, but a way to make the city richer and healthier by pledging our commitment to practice these human values and be motivated to serve our community through volunteer work, or by donating blood for food for the needy; and

WHEREAS, walk for values is designed to raise the awareness of Human Values and to promote individual responsibility towards the collective future of humanity. Walk for Values is a platform to educate people on the importance of practising these five human values in daily life and the awareness it creates in the making of enlightened citizens for universal peace.

NOW THEREFORE, I, Ken Boshcoff, Mayor of the City of Thunder Bay, do hereby proclaim the April 24, 2023 as “Human Values Day’ in the City of Thunder Bay.
