From: Brent Patterson <bpatterson@canadians.org>

Just some follow-up from yesterday morning's Chapters this Week! report, [ https://canadians.org/node/16372 ]
I'm so glad to hear that the South Shore chapter's 'Unsettling Canada' book club went so well - more coming on that soon, but here's a photo [ https://twitter.com/CBrentPatterson/sta ... 9299007488 ]

I hope the Prince Albert chapter's slow food potluck went well last night - and best wishes to the Comox Valley chapter for the rally they'll be at today (opposing fish farms).

And I'll add the points below to next week's list, but since there are 10 items to add already I thought I would share them this morning.
