Thirty supporters gathered at Oakville Town Hall last night to form a new chapter of the Council of Canadians- the Halton Chapter. People expressed interest in a variety of issues including water protection, democratic reform, the rights of indigenous peoples and low income housing. Several of the new Halton chapter activists have been supporting the Council since its foundation 33 years ago.
We were also joined by members of the nearby Hamilton chapter who came out to share their experiences and offer their support and encouragement.
The Halton chapter is the 19th in the Ontario-Quebec-Nunavut region. Their next meeting will be Wednesday Feb 15th. For more details, email the chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org
