The Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs hosts its 73rd annual conference in Orillia, Ont., August 5–8, 2004. This year’s conference is entitled “God’s Back with a Vengeance.”

Following this, students from Russia, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Egypt lead a discussion. Rinku Lamba (a scholar at the University of Toronto) discusses multiculturalism in India, where secularism serves to preserve values of equal citizenship.
