Just say "No" to War every Wednesday at noon with the Wednesday Peace Vigil.  We are opposed to the idea that war solves anything.  We know that war kills kids.  Please come take a stand with us for any part of the hour at the Cenotaph at the Legislature some Wednesday soon (Belleville & Government).  Meeting weekly since October 2001 when Canadian forces joined in support of the "humanitarian bombing" of Afghanistan.   (Note:  We no longer meet at 7:00 pm.)  Jane Brett < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

3.  STRONG SENIORS; STRONG COMMUNITY Workshops

This project supports seniors to be more assertive, to advocate for themselves and to be better informed.  By building skills, encouraging a network of peers and providing access to information, we encourage self-reliance and empower seniors to make informed decisions in dealing with their families, their health care professionals and the people they do business with.
