"The Strategic Initiative which all these Committees strive for is to create opportunities to demonstrate Masonic values within our communities and convey a positive and accurate perception of Freemasonry."
"As Grand Master, I continue to remind you that we have all promised to personally uphold a Brothers good name and to repel others who would slander his good name. This is the first and great lesson of Masonry."
Have you ever seen the parade of officers, guests and visitors at the opening of Grand Lodge? I can tell you that on my travels the foreign Grand Masters rave about the pomp and circumstance of our opening. If you can, get there early on Wednesday to watch the parade. Then stay for the Grand Master’s address.
“My vote means nothing,” says a Brother. My response as a Brother, who has faced many elections in Masonry, for close to twenty years, be it to be Master of the Lodge, District Deputy Grand Master of the District, Deputy Grand Master and then Grand Master is simply to say your vote counts. All votes count! It is your chance to shape Masonry in Ontario at all levels, I urge you to exercise your responsibility and vote.
