    Prioritie UN Declaration Ligislation

    You're invited to join MCC in supporting the Government of Canada’s legislation around the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), being tabled in Parliament this December. MCC believes that passing a legislative framework to implement UNDRIP is an excellent step toward ensuring the human rights of Indigenous Peoples are respected and honoured in Canada. If you agree, we invite you to contact Minister of Justice David Lametti and your MP to urge them to fulfill the government’s commitment to reconciliation by making every effort to bring this legislation to Royal Assent. Visit mcccanada.ca/take-action to use MCC’s convenient letter-writing tool to amplify the calls of Indigenous neighbours.

    Let’s Talk EVs – Are You Ready For an Electric Vehicle? The Nith Valley EcoBoosters are pleased to host this introductory EV webinar on Thursday, February 18th from 7:15 to 8:45 p.m. The webinar will discuss a number of factors to take into account when deciding whether to purchase an EV including financial, environmental plus travel and cargo usability considerations. Our presenter is Andy Wilson, a resident of New Hamburg, an EV owner, and a member of the Waterloo Region Electric Vehicle Association. In researching the pros and cons of EVs, Andy encountered many myths and misinformation. As a result, he created this presentation to help others understand the benefits and realities of driving an EV as he sees them. He is not an EV technical expert, but likes to share what he has learned. Assisting Andy with the presentation are local EV owners Neil Lackey and Bart Van Andel. A Question & Answer period will follow the presentation. This is a free webinar but registration is required. Register at: Let's Talk EV's or nvecoboosters.com
