The Council of Canadians' Annual Conference and Business Meeting - October 25 - 27, 2013, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

This year, our Annual General Meeting moves to the prairie plains in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We will bring together members, chapter activists, supporters and allies for a dynamic weekend event that includes a public forum, workshops, panels and more. On behalf of our Saskatoon Chapter and regional hosts, Board members Rick Sawa, Bill Moore-Kilgannon and Lois Frank, we invite you to join us in Saskatoon for this inspiring event.

Groundswell: Grassroots Power in the Age of Extreme Energy will look at the power of communities in Saskatchewan and across Canada to stand up to corporations and governments to protect our shared environment, our jobs and the democratic process.

We hope to see you there!
