Town Hall Meeting with Isobel Mackenzie, BC Seniors Advocate

1 – 3 pm, Tuesday, January 20, 2015     Sechelt Indian Band Hall, Sechelt

Ms. Mackenzie made it clear at her inaugural press conference following her appointment last fall that she sees her mandate as speaking for BC seniors to government rather than speaking from government to BC seniors.  This will be her first trip to the Sunshine Coast in her role as Seniors Advocate.
 Ms. Mackenzie will discuss her role as Seniors Advocate, seniors’ concerns heard across BC, speak to housing issues, transportation and other issues of concern to seniors.   There will be ample time for questions and discussion. All are welcome.  Sponsored by Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens (COSCO-BC) and the Community Resource Centre. 

We are at a critical and time-sensitive phase of the final decision-making process on Site C. Now we need YOU to help ensure that our government representatives understand that Site C is absolutely NOT a good investment for BC. Please send your letters  as soon as possible to Minister deJong at mike.dejong.mla at before it’s TOO LATE!  A final decision is to be announced between now and Christmas.                  Peace Valley Environment Association             Sierra Club
