On Friday November 8, 2019, the Rockin in the Rockies Car Club held their annual Christmas dinner. Members were asked to bring donation items for the Cranbrook Women’s Resource Centre and the Cranbrook Food Bank. Pictured above is Oreen Walker, Treasurer for the Rockin in the Rockies Car Club and Denise Stewart, Program Coordinator for the Cranbrook Women’s Resource Centre a program of Community Connections Society of Southeast BC. We would like to take the opportunity to thank the members of the Car Club for the generosity shown by all the donations collected. Each year the Women’s Resource Centre sees many Women in need of support from fleeing abusive situations, legal advice, and/or lay counselling. Donations are accepted all year round and most appreciated and as this time of the year can be exceptionally difficult donations such as what has been received come in a timely manner and are greatly appreciated.
From BC Poverty Reduction Coalition
It’s an exciting, historic moment! Today the BC Government introduced a law to implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We are celebrating this historic occasion, and we are asking you to join us.
This legislation makes sure that Indigenous people in British Columbia enjoy the same rights and protections as everyone else in the province. If a project, or a law, or an investment impacts First Nations communities, then they will have a say. For the first time in Canadian history, Indigenous peoples will be brought into decision-making at ground level, not left as an afterthought.
