The Ottawa West Nepean Federal Liberal Association’s newsletter is going to be released at some point in the next month. I write a blurb for the youth section every time that it is released and I thought I’d include it here.
The Ottawa West Nepean Young Liberals are more active than ever before! In the last couple months we have been out canvassing and we have been at a bunch of great federal events. We’re thinking about hosting a rebuilding session for Young Liberals and a couple of us are meeting to discuss that on March 18th at 1:00pm at the Royal Oak in Centrepointe. We’re looking forward to being very active in the months to come!
We do need your help with something. We’re looking for new members and we want you to tell any and all youth that you might know to come out to our next full meeting on April 2nd at 7:30pm at the Royal Oak in Centrepointe. Our club provides young Liberals with a chance to talk with other youth about the things that matter to them. Tell your friends between the ages of 14 and 25 about us; they’ll be pleased that you did!
This is, in fact, all very true. We are having a meeting on April 2nd and we would love to see you there!

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.
