"Love, kindness and friendliness may be ways of being compassionate, but they are not compassion itself.
At the heart of compassion is the courage to look into the causes of suffering – in particular our dark side – with a dedication to acquire the wisdom of understanding the causes and roads to the alleviation and prevention of suffering with the determination to take action."

The Compassionate Community Initiative of York Region is weaving compassion into the social fabric of the community.
It foresees (4C) Creating Conversations for a Compassionate Community that invites voices across all sectors.
To build a compassionate community .
We are part of The Charter for Compassion, an international movement to promote and cultivate the principle of compassion and the Compassionate Way of Life, as articulated by the Charter for Compassion, so that compassion characterizes all human society and all relationships.
We respectfully acknowledge our presence on the traditional territories and ancestral lands and waters of the original stewards: the Huron Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples.
York Region is a colonial boundary that is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississauga’s of the Credit, and the Williams Treaty signed with many Mississauga and Chippewa Bands.
As settlers we are uninvited guests. And we are all treaty people bound by the responsibility to honour and heal our relations with each other.
This acknowledgement is one step to reconciliation, as has been outlined in the Truth and Reconciliation Report Calls to Action.
An understanding of how our collective past has brought us to where we are today will help us walk together into a better future.
We pray that our Beloved Creator will help us recognize our common humanity, interconnection, and interdependence.
