Council of Canadians hosting Chapter Chat on May 11

The Comox Valley Council of Canadians invites you to attend its first “Chapter Chat” on Wednesday, May 11 in the Filberg Centre’s Evergreen Lounge.

This is a great opportunity to find out more about the campaigns the chapter is involved with – and why they are important to our lives as citizens of the Comox Valley, B.C., Canada and of the world.

Members of the health care, corporate rights (trade) agreements and electoral reform teams will outline the work being done by the chapter in these areas.

Following the overviews, questions and feedback will be welcomed in informal, small group discussions.

Letter writing suggestions, informative web links and petitions will be available to assist those wishing to take action on any of the important topics.

Everyone is invited to the Chapter Chat at the Evergreen Seniors’ Lounge at the Filberg at 411 Anderton Ave. in Courtenay from 7-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11.
