It’s time for another Discussion Night! Last month we ventured South, this month we’ll venture West. To accommodate those people in the western townships, we’ll have this month’s discussion night at Kennedy’s Restaurant in St. Agatha.

People conferencing at a tableDon’t forget about the continuing Community Dialogue meetings, at which we work on group submissions to the Special Committee on Electoral Reform. If the Electoral reform – Canada.ca site is a bit overwhelming then come to a Community Dialogue for guidance in making a submission.

What: Community Dialogues
When: Every Tuesday, 6:30pm to 9:00pm
Where: Queen Street Commons Cafe
