Comox Valley Council of Canadians – Call To Council
AGM & Community Activist Award
Thursday, November 22 – 7:00 pm Evergreen Lounge,
Filberg Centre 411 Anderton Ave., Courtenay
The Chapter is extending an invitation to CV Council of Canadian supporters to come together as concerned activists and join in an open discussion to strengthen, energize and focus our vision to move forward at this crucial time in history.
Our climate and earth are under siege. The recent United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report says the next 12 years are crucial to holding the lifeline.
Comox Valley has new municipal councillors and regional directors. How do we collaborate so our communities thrive and achieve sustainability?
Fresh water, oceans and wildlife need protection yet there are few mechanisms in place that make this possible. Provincially, nationally and globally the inequalities of wealth, and access to housing, nutrition and health care continues to grow.
It is time to stop spending taxes opposing the rights of Indigenous peoples.
Populations are fleeing fires, floods, drought, hunger and thirst – symptoms creating climate refugees as never before. The rise of far right nationalism, immigration fears and closing of borders are growing concerns as world democracies become destabilized.
How do we approach, handle and promote solutions to such overwhelming situations?
The goal of the AGM is to open the dialogue on how these issues relate to and can be addressed from the Comox Valley. We’ll discuss how the resources of the Council of Canadians can bring us together and focus our energies as we move forward into 2019.
Also, the highly anticipated 11th Annual Community Action Award will be presented this evening to an individual or group that has demonstrated progressive community action over the year and whose goals are consistent with those of the Council of Canadians.
We look forward to welcoming you!
