Dinner and a Movie: Honour Your Word

Honour Your Word is an intimate  portrait of life behind the barricades for the Algonquins of Barriere Lake, an inspiring First Nation whose dignity and courage contrast sharply with the political injustice they face.  The title refers to their campaign  slogan demanding Canada and Quebec honour  a precedent-setting conservation deal signed in 1991.  

Donations for the Barriere Lake people are appreciated and will be accepted, but they are not expected.

Clear Communication, Healthier Relationships

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