Congratulations to everyone for such a successful event on Dec. 1. Over 300 people attended our town hall and Maude Barlow expressed that it was a very touching evening. What was powerful, was hearing afterwards how many people said they felt like they could be part of change, like we were empowering each other to envision and create a better future.

The meeting at 7:00 p.m. on Wed. Dec. 7, 2011 at The East Village Cafe (785 Dundas Street just west of Aeolian Hall) will be about next steps.
It will be an actions-based evening where people can work on an action that is important to them.
Hope to see you there but if you cannot make it and are working on it from home, feel free to ask for sample letters, info, email addresses, etc.
to send to. The whole approach is to work like bees -- waggle dance, buzz and get as many Canadians in the know as possible from celebs to reporters to common day folks like you and I. CETA will NOT be signed if we create loud noise but the trick here to remember is that:
We are the ones we've been waiting for.
