(LSN) – Human Life International has completed its Canadian national petition expressing loyalty to the Pope and Church teachings including fidelity to controversial points such as the pro-life and pro-family concepts of often stressed by pope John Paul II.

The HLI petition has nearly 36,000 signatures, six times that of Catholics of Vision Canada (CVC) who was calling for changes in the Church. The CVC sent a letter to the Canadian Bishops noting that their 6,000 strong petition must not be discounted. Neither should the 36,000 signatures of those who wish to remain faithful to the true teachings of the Church.
