Happy Friday everyone! Here are five things I found worth knowing about this week:
With the holiday season not too far away, and rumours of supply chain challenges, why not support #LandBackCamp by purchasing items from their Holiday Auction.
The Sexual Assault Support Centre's Male Allies program is a "six-week program for men dedicated to talking about masculinity, including how masculinity impacts men and women, girls, queer, and non-binary people in our communities. At its core, it aims to dismantle patriarchy and end sexual and gender-based violence." The next session starts Nov 4th.
At Kitchener Council this past Monday, council approved a plan to reduce speed limits to 40km/hr on residential streets and further reduce the limit to 30km/hr in school zones. You can read the press release here.
It's #coopweek and I have loved learning about all sorts of new co-operatives, both locally and globally. I found this video, which highlights a couple of co-operatives and how they are dealing with the pandemic, quite interesting.
Speaking of co-operatives, I was thrilled that Union Co-operative was profiled in the Record yesterday (paywalled article). I think this 'first in Canada' model has the potential to make some real change locally in its efforts to permanently preserve housing affordability through community ownership. If you have any questions about Union's approach, I am happy to chat!
