Public Event of interest to members
This is not a CFUW PQ sponsored event, but is from one of our club members: please feel free to participate if you wish, contact Shirley for more details.
Parksville Council has approved the 19 bed Treatment Centre proposal to move forward to a Public Forum on Nov 22, 6 p.m. in the Parksville Civic and Technology Centre.
Oceanside CAT (OCAT) will be working with Moms Stop the Harm and other community groups to encourage those in favour of helping the recovery of people in our community, to attend the forum and support the Treatment Centre.
We will have purple ribbons available for those who support recovery and the Treatment Centre, and also orange ribbons to show support for reconciliation as we move forward on this initiative. Island Health has agreed to consult with Elders in the naming of the Centre.
Please mark your calendars and plan on attending if possible. See the PQB News coverage below, as well. More letters to Parksville Council in support of the proposal are also welcome!
