Hi everyone,

Our next ward meeting is on Monday -- I've attached an agenda. Let me know if you have other items to discuss. We'll spend time thinking about our outreach priorities and have a chance to talk about what worked and what didn't in Bike Month.

We'll meet at 7 pm at the NORTH campfire (near the rinkhouse) in Dufferin Grove Park. Feel free to bring roastable snacks and bevvies -- there will be a few things on hand.

 

Newcomers are ALWAYS welcome!!

Politics and campaigns
jamker on Apr 19, 2014

Is it reasonable to use the Ward Events and Ward Post functions to communicate about politics and campaigns that are only vaguely related to our efforts under the CycleTO umbrella?

This morning, the site's spam filter blocked my attempt to post notice about a meeting next week, of the Davenport Greens. (It's happening at the Dufferin/St Clair library on Thursday, Apr 24th from 6:15 to 8).

We should build connections with local groups with similar goals. There's a line we shouldn't cross, somewhere--but where to draw it?

best wishes
