This year there are only two Resolutions (and one was submitted by our Club), so we decided to change the format a bit. The Resolutions will be presented individually to the membership, and discussed in a timed format. We will not separate into smaller discussion groups.
We will be discussing and voting on the following Resolutions:
- Reducing Climate Change Through the Use of Carbon Taxes-CFUW Victoria
- Saving Our Pollinators and Our Environment: Moratorium on the Use of Neonicotinoid Pesticides-CFUW Edmonton
Here is the link to the Resolutions
Once the business part of our meeting is complete, our guest Elizabeth May will speak to our Club! Elizabeth is an environmentalist, writer, activist, and lawyer. She is the Leader of the Green Party of Canada and the current Saanich-Gulf Islands Member of Parliament. She has written seven books, most recently Losing Confidence: Power, Politics and the Crisis in Canadian Democracy.
This empowering event will be in the Sanctuary at the Citadel, and it is a great opportunity for members to bring guests (potential new members?) Your opinion counts! CFUW Resolutions become our policies, which guide our Club’s initiatives. We look forward to seeing you all there!
(please note-food and beverages are not allowed in the Sanctuary, therefore we will not be having refreshments at this event)
SAVE THE DATE!! This will be a very motivating and exciting Resolutions Meeting.
