    1976. 1 - 4 Jan On the weekend of January 1—4, the newly-formed Canadian Association for Studies on the Bahá'í Faith held its first annual meeting at Cedar Glen, a conference centre 30 miles north of Toronto. The postal strike had made it impossible for the executive committee to provide adequate notification to the members, and this together with the very bad weather, suggested that attendance would be quite small. The committee, therefore, reserved space for only 50 people. No fewer than 80 participants turned up. Moreover, they came from every province in Canada, except Prince Edward Island, and from as far north as the Yukon. Fifteen local Spiritual Assemblies each sent a representative, and of course a number of the members of the Association were present in a dual capacity as representatives either of their own Spiritual Assembly or of a campus club.

    Seven speakers presented papers in a wide range of academic disciplines. The speakers were:
    'Abdu'l Misagh Ghadirian-"August Forel: His Life and Enlightenment".
    Douglas Martin-"The Bahá'í Faith and Its Critics".
    Luc Dion, a student of Physics at the Université du Québec in Chicoutimi-"La realité du monde e l'existence de Dieu". He had the distinction of being the first Bahá'í student to present a formal paper and also presented the first paper in French.
    Hossain Danesh-"Violence and Apathy".
    William Hatcher-on the relationship between science and religion.
    Don Rogers-"The Function of Revelation in Artistic Expression".
    Glen Eyford-"Spiritual Education".

    A decision was taken to begin the publication of Bahá'í Studies.

    In addition, the “Ballet Shayda” presented a group of three dances on Saturday evening. [BC Issue 291 February 1976 p6]
