"A celebration of life: the AIDS memorial. A celebration of the lives of people in Canada lost to AIDS. A week-long installation allowing a chance for wide public viewing. First step in plans for a permanent tribute. Opening ceremony on Monday at 4:30pm with Councillor Jack Layton. Testing AIDS: the case for early treatment. A forum on the pros and cons of testing and early treatment. Panelists include: Dr Mathilde Krim (American Foundation for AIDS Research), Michael Callen (New York PWA Coalition), William Flanagan (McGill Centre for Medicine, Ethics and Law) and Dr Richard Schabas (Ontario Medical Officer of Health). Colours of hope: the candlelight vigil. A chance to remember the courage of those who have died and to renew the struggle to support those living with HIV. Candles provided. No TV cameras allowed. Dress warmly. Bring umbrellas if it rains. Tools for healthy living: holistic health and HIV symposium. Workshops and demos of complementary health practices: diet, herbal healing, body therapies and more. Relax at holistic cafe. AIDS Awareness Week. Our challenge. October 16-22, 1989."
