WE the citizens have an obligation … and A RIGHT to be informed of what OUR representative ‘politicians’ are up to, and are first CONSULTING with the VOTER not toeing the party line
. . in a healthy democracy (where having elections is only the means not the end) voter participation means taking back ownership of the decisions being made
Issues will always be present . . . elections are about sending the right people to parliament
At this event, politics is not a bad word we encourage you to engage and talk and ask questions in order to get to know your candidates
You may be surprised that the party you normally vote for might not have a candidate you would want as an MP.
The right person will properly represent your issues .. because they will listen, respect the community concerns, and try to find ways to get things done
We need MP’s who will stand up for their community’s best interests
Join in the future for yourself and your family!
that is why our virtual town halls may not follow the generic or traditional format
definition of democracy is:
government by the people, rule of the majority … a government in which
the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly
or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving
periodically held free elections

Come join us and be part of our TWENTIETH annual commemoration of the
UNITED NATIONS INTERNATIONAL DAY for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
Saturday 21 March 2020
A full day public event noon to evening at Kitchener City Hall
Discrimination requires dialogue and education.
We do not limit the day to racism.
We invite presentations that address any forms of discrimination.
Confirmed so far:
Two international award winning special needs theatre productions coming to Kitchener
It gives me great pride to include two international theatre productions — one from Egypt and one from the Sharjah (United Arab Emirates) who include a cast of special needs individuals allowing them to flourish and share their incredible talents — the productions are internationally acclaimed, they are award winners and have been honoured by many entities including the UN, professionals in the field from Europe and many others.
(sign language and English subtitles provided)
Anti racism in education
Anti racism and Yoga meditation
55 minute film followed by an interactive discussion
It is more than just a film. It is a medium and the impact of cinema that we can ascertain positive mindsets especially towards women. It deals with the real identity of women — through trials and tribulations — we still stand strong and powerful. It is a true validation to self. It is a movement of mindset — that defines beauty.
Be it Puri (Odisha) or North America — the problems and the movement is the same.
