Thank you so much to everyone who participated in EWB’s Run to End Poverty this past weekend! It was a beautiful, although chilly, day out on the mountain and it was an absolute pleasure running along side all of you, both old friends and new.
The race may be over, but there is still time to donate on the race website : Ici.

We would like to invite you to our next member learning on Mining and Local Communities Wednesday (24.07.) at 18:30 at Burritoville (3rd floor) given by Jan de Bakker. The session will be given in English.
This member learning will explore how mining and resource extraction either provide net benefits to local communities, or engender opposition. Members will go over two case studies of mining projects in Canada: the proposed Cliffs Chromite mine and smelter in Northwest Ontario, and the Raglan mine in Nunavik, Quebec. As we discuss these cases, we will try to determine what went right, what went wrong, and what can be improved.
