Advocacy Initiatives

There is a full house at the Perth Civitan tonight, where all four candidates showed up and answered questions from all different directions, but with a strong focus on farming and food.  The standing room only crowd was very enthusiastic about accountable government and also was big on supporting local farmers, veterans, refuges, and First Nations students and communities.  We also heard individual candidates support the reopening of the prison farms, the creation of pharmacare, saving Canada Post, and addressing the threat of global warming.   A few people got a little hot under the collar and strayed from questions, but the moderator helped keep people on task, and all in all it was an informative and respectful evening where we all got a chance to see what the candidates and parties think, and how each candidate is able to think under pressure from constituents.

A one day workshop to help you learn better communication skills.  Lunch provided. Transportation help and gift cards available for participants.

Back by popular demand! The recent Meditation and Mindfulness workshops led by peer advocate Kathy Bedard were such a big hit we have decided to do it all over again. This time around we will be meeting on Tuesdays at The Table's Community Garden in Last Duel Park, sessions begin at 11:00 am. If you are able to bring a folding chair with you please do, we will have yoga mats and some chairs on hand. For more information please call 613-267-6428 ext. 29 or email advocacy@thetablecfc.org

No previous meditation/mindfulness experience necessary- all levels welcome!

We are looking forward to a summer of mindfulness, we hope to see you there!
