Speak out Saturday on crime

  • Oct. 25, 2006 3:00 p.m.

Submitted article–Saturday November 4 from 1:30 – 4:30 the Safe House, IWS Victim Services, IWS Counsellors, and the RCMP will be hosting an event called “Building Bridges: A Collaborative Community Gathering Aimed at Increasing Community Safety”, at the Skidegate Community Hall. Coffee, tea, snacks and desserts will be available to all participants, and there’ll be door prizes galore.
This “Community Capacity Building” gathering will feature guest speaker Kathleen Whipp and respected community leaders from Queen Charlotte, Sandspit, Skidegate and Tlell. The community at large is also invited to take this opportunity to speak to issues of crime and victimization in their own words or to ask questions of the panel of hosts and our guest speaker.
We all share the common ground of having genuine concern for the safety of our children, youth, and each other. Join us in expressing that concern and finding solutions through dialogue and community action. Feel free to call Sandra Beggs at 559-8843 if you have any questions (or if you are interested in donating a door prize!).
