Next week Ottawa West Nepean’s Federal Riding Association will be hosting the next in its series of discussion forum events. We’ll be talking about Canada’s pension system and particularly about the Harper government’s plans to increase the age at which seniors can claim OAS from 65 to 67.
The event should be lots of fun and there are plenty of reasons to come check it out. The Liberal Party’s opposition critic for seniors and pensions, the Hon. Judy Sgro, will be there along with two other guest speakers. This is a chance to come meet a prominent elected official and a representative of the Liberal Party. That said, the event is open to non-Liberals and anyone can come. Pensions and the OAS are an important issue. Even if you aren’t old enough now for this issue to affect you, chances are that you know someone who is affected.
This event presents you with the chance to learn more about pensions and the OAS, whether or not you’re a Liberal.
We hope you can make it!
You know the content is awesome when this up-and-coming English teacher forgives a consistent lack of capitalization.
Broadcaster and author Gill Deacon writes about the tension and reclamation of her new role as the political wife as her husband Grant Gordon runs in the by-election in Toronto-Danforth. It’s really worth a look!
From the article:
[…] there’s no denying the challenge of my role in this adventure, not least of which is that moniker: political wife. it sounds so plastic, saccharine, thankless.
We’re getting together again! It’s time to move this out of the living room and into the community. We all love Michelle and Lisa for their hospitality, but the Oak provides things like chairs and beer.. 😛
Invite a friend or two from outside the club to come join us–no pressure to join the club or become a member(yet!), just to hang out and see what we’re up to. And if anyone’s missing from the event, PLEASE invite them here on Facebook!
Besides, Monday at the Oak has some tasty deals: Bud, Bud Light and Bud Light Lime tall cans (473ml) – $5.95 ea. WING NIGHT – After 5pm, 1lb/$6.99
The Oak we’re referring to is the new one in Centrepointe, right next to Ben Franklin Place, easily accessible from Baseline Station. 117 Centrepointe Drive, Nepean.
We’ll circulate a draft agenda via email, but at the moment, here’s some topics to think about:
-t-shirts are available!
-feedback on the website (https://ownyljloon.wordpress.com/)
-planning a youth rebuilding event! What issues are important to you?
-more ideas for our YouTube channel
-provincial and federal reports
See you at the Oak, OWNYLs!
