In an email dated Friday, March 2, and posted to here (http://awwca.ca/2012/03/02/accommodation-review-request-from-trustee-judith-bishop/), Judith Bishop reached out to her constituents to ask our opinion on the two proposals put forward in the Dalewood area review. The We Need 3 campaign felt that a number of statements in her email required clarification in order to get a true picture of where the community stands.
We have posted a response on our website which you can read here: http://weneed3.com/response.html

Attend the Committee of the Whole meeting on Monday, April 16, the day the trustees will vote on which option they support. It is very important that as many people as possible attend this meeting. This might just be the most important thing you can do. If we can fill that chamber, it WILL influence their vote. The meeting will take place at the Education Centre at 7 pm.
