Mark your calendars for Thursday September 26th! Transition Perth is very excited to be hosting a unique community meeting at the Perth Legion, 26 Beckwith Street East. Sponsored by the Town of Perth, the evening will focus on building resilience in Perth and area. Resilience is our ability to respond constructively to changes and challenges in our world.

Please join me on Wed. June 13 at 5:30 pm at the Wendy's Plaza on Hwy 7 in Perth for the cross Canada protest at Conservative MPs offices. Scott Reid's office is set so far back from the road so we will rally at the highway for more visibility. Bring signs, Canadian flags and pots and pans to bang. We are asking Mr. Reid to vote against the budget implementation Bill C-38. Please let me know if you are coming. Anita Payne 613-267-0881

The key vote on the Federal Budget Bill could come as soon as next Thursday, June 14, and the opposition parties are gearing up to use every tool they have, including a filibuster, in a final effort to slow the Bill down and split it apart.

On Wednesday, June 13th at 5:30PM local time, while our MPs gather in Ottawa for a decisive showdown in Parliament, we’ll rally their home ridings, and communities across Canada, to call for 13 “hero” Conservative MPs to work together and stop the Bill, split it, and start over.
