COUSINS, 55 Sherbrook
TUESDAY NOV 21
6:30 soft start, 7pm business
Council of Canadians Winnpeg Chapter regular meeting.
Our next chapter meeting will be a relaxed evening at Cousins, on the corner of Sherbrook and Wolseley on Tuesday, Nov 21. We'll start informally at 6:30 pm as usual and plan to cover business at 7.
After a long journey working on Energy East pipeline resistance (Yay!), we are ready to refocus our attention, and there's plenty to keep us busy!
One important local issue is the debilitating funding cut for Winnipeg Transit. Fewer buses and higher fares will make it impossible for many low income and reduced mobility citizens to get back and forth to work, school, grocery shopping, health care and all the events of daily life that car owners take for granted. Those who are close enough to walk to destinations face hazardous sidewalk conditions and will have to choose between isolation or risking an injury that would send them to the underfunded, understaffed health care system.
It's a bleak outlook! Let's talk about things we can do to help prevent the worst consequences of the Manitoba Government's irresponsible decisions.
See you there!
