Comox Valley Chapter of the Council of Canadians AGM

The annual general meeting of the Comox Valley Chapter of the Council of Canadians is March 21.

Are you interested in being part of a global civil society movement working to promote positive social change in Canada and the world?

If so, come to the annual general meeting of the Comox Valley Chapter of the Council of Canadians.

The meeting will feature a look back at the Chapter’s activities over the past year and discussion about plans for the year ahead. Information will be provided on ways for people to get involved in the work of the Chapter — from writing letters, attending rallies … or even baking for a general meeting.

Election of a new executive will also take place at this meeting.

The Council of Canadians is one of the many groups that have expressed opposition to the proposed Raven Coal Mine.

John Snyder of Coal Watch will give a short presentation outlining where we’ve been on the Raven Coal Mine issue, where we’re currently at, and what people will be asked to do in the near future.

A collection will be taken at the meeting to support the Hupacasath First Nation’s court challenge of the Foreign Investment Protection and Promotion Agreement (FIPA). Council of Canadians will match all donations to help pay for the legal costs of this crucial challenge.

The AGM will take place March 21 at 7 p.m. in the Rotary Hall of the Florence Filberg Centre.

The Council of Canadians is Canada’s largest citizens’ organization, with members and chapters across the country.

They work to protect Canadian independence by promoting progressive policies on fair trade, clean water, energy security, public health care, and other issues of social and economic concern to Canadians.
