NEW LISTINGS

1.  CANCELLED – Forum on Guaranteed Annual Income

The PEI Working Group for a Livable Income regrets that it is forced to CANCEL the forum on guaranteed annual income planned for Tuesday, April 24.

2.  PEI’s Pro-Choice Movement to Hold ‘Speak-Out’

Thursday, April 26th
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The Guild, corner of Queen and Richmond Street, Charlottetown
Light refreshments provided. Donations accepted at the door.

On Thursday, April 26th at 7pm, the PEI Abortion Rights Network is holding a ‘Speak-Out’ at the Guild, in Charlottetown. PEI Women of many different ages will share their experiences with reproductive choice. Focusing on abortion and the morning after pill, the intention of this event is to change the culture of shame and silence around these topics through the act of storytelling.

Speak-Outs have played an important role in the history of the Pro-Choice movement as powerful events that break the culture of fear and shame that serve to silence women. Of particular note is the Redstocking Speak-Out that disrupted the 1969 New York Legislative hearing about abortion which was to include only twelve men and a catholic nun as speakers.

According to a spokesperson for the PEI Abortion Rights Network, the Speak-Out is highlighting both the lack of abortion access on PEI and the regressive politics surrounding  a debate taking  place on the same day in the federal legislature. The Conservative-initiated debate on the personhood of a fetus is taking place despite Prime Minister Harper’s election promise that the Conservatives would not open the abortion debate while he was prime minister.

“This ‘Speak-Out’ is PEI women’s response to the federal debate. We are saying this is not a theoretical debate, and this is not an excuse to play politics. This is about our lives.”

Event Details:
Following up on a successful event in Halifax last year, Chris Flett is touring Atlantic Canada again, and will be in Charlottetown on Thursday April 26, 2012.  Chris Flett will be speaking on “What Men Don’t Tell Women in Business”, based on his best selling book.  This event is being presented in partnership with RBC, Heather Wilson International, momcafé, and platform for women.

We would love for you to forward the invitation to anyone else you feel might be interested.  It is a great chance for women to get together and really connect.

Charlottetown business women will have two opportunities to hear Chris speak.  He will be leading an intensive morning session along with PEI native Tasha Richard of the Ghost CEO Women’s Leadership Program.  This half-day session brings to light the three fundamentals for any professional woman looking to advance her career:

1)    Having a clear big picture and plan for their career
2)    Understanding how to increase professional value (reputation, quality of contacts, and unique skills & expertise) throughout their career
3)    Building a powerful business network that produces clients, opportunities, and support

When participants leave the room, they will have at their disposal, some of the most powerful planning tools known to the industry. These tools will be relevant now and throughout their careers.

As well, in the afternoon we have the privilege of hearing Chris Flett, author of “What Men Don’t Tell Women in Business” give a very special keynote address. During this session Chris will share with participants an authentic Alpha Male’s account of what has happened to business in the last 40 years, what drives Alpha Males in business, and the ways that professional women unknowingly give up their power in business to men. This discussion covers all the things men discuss at the water cooler, in the locker room, and in the board room when women aren’t present. Participants should come prepared for a truthful look inside the Alpha Male’s playbook of business.

CHRIS FLETT, who hails from New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, is an author, speaker,entrepreneur, and instigator of the new model of business. He is the founder of the Ghost CEO business coaching model for women, is a best-selling author who has appeared on the Today Show, MSNBC, Fox Business Network, and who’s work has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Entrepreneur magazine.

6.  May Day Event Being Planned – From Kathie Harris

On May 1, workers from around the world come together at demonstrations, marches, and rallies to discuss political/economic problems and to demand government accountability in resolving them. Within Canada, the list of things to worry about is growing at an unbelievable rate: there is building evidence that our election was severely tampered with via a Robo-Calling Scam; we are experiencing a massive set of cuts to social welfare programs including C@P sites, addictions treatment, rehabilitation programs, and Indigenous health-care; the approval of mass cuts to important pillars of society such as the CBC and Elections Canada; the introduction of massive layoff programs such as at Veterans Affairs, Health Canada, and Employment Insurance processing centers. All of this is being done with seemingly NO consideration of negative impacts such as how these shifts impact quality of life and accessibility of services. Despite justifying these cuts through the language of ?austerity?, federal and provincial governments continue to invest tax dollars into unnecessary programming/infrastructure such as a series of rolling hills in Borden, construction of several jails (despite low crime rates), the operation of an internet surveillance network that severely threatens Canadian privacy (proposed), and the purchasing of fighter-jets to name a few. They also habitually ignore issues of land-use and withdraw support from environmental protection and management programs.

Despite wide-scale reactions from Canadians, federal and provincial governments seem to have heeded little attention to the ever-growing number of protests, petitions, emails and phone-calls directed to them by concerned citizens asking them to act on our behalf in Parliament and Legislature. In this sense, the concerns of everyday Canadians are continuously being brushed off by the very officials we have elected to work on our behalf (although at this point, Robo-Gate throws even the issue of whether that is a valid statement).

The purpose of this rally is TO JOIN TOGETHER AS ISLANDERS AND CANADIANS TO DEMAND FAIR REPRESENTATION AND CONSIDERATION FROM OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS.

Please join us in front of Province House on Tuesday, May 1 from 4:00-5:30 for a Mayday/May Day Prince Edward Island rally where we will come together and voice issues that matter to us as Islanders and Canadians. The purpose of this rally is to demand that our officials begin acting for us, the people whom they were elected to represent. Transparency, accountability, and discussion are important parts of democratic society and we believe that they are brought back into the political process, provincially and federally.

8.  Round Two of Community Micro-Grants Projects Announced

The City of Charlottetown is inviting citizens to be architects of our City’s future and Integrated Community Sustainability Plan. Following up the pilot Community Micro – Grants Project in the Fall of 2011, the City is, once again, offering financial support for the development of community initiatives that demonstrate a commitment to create a healthier, vibrant and Sustainable City.

“Last fall community groups designed and implemented three fabulous projects,” said Mayor Clifford Lee. “These micro-grant projects stimulated community action and engaged citizens in creative community efforts, and generated real accomplishments citizens can take pride in.”

The three projects that received Community Micro Grants in 2011 include; The Street Transformation Project hosted by Cycle PEI, The Rag Tag Players Youth Theatre Troup full-time after school art program and the Upper Prince Street Neighbourhood’s Street Tulips & Stories project designed to foster dialogue and pride within this heritage street community.

“The Micro-Grants project was established to create awareness of, and opportunity for, collaboration to build a more vibrant, healthy and sustainable City,” said Councillor Rob Lantz, Chair of the City’s Sustainability Committee. “This project was a great success last fall and we welcome applicants to propose new ways for how we can work toward the goals and actions in our plan collectively.”

The City is currently accepting proposals for the second round of grants, until May 14th, 2012. There will be two streams of grants; one for youth and school groups (a maximum of $1,000) and another for other groups and organizations (a maximum of $2,500).

The project guidelines and application forms are available on the City’s website (www.charlottetown.ca). A review committee will grant funding based on each initiative’s potential to achieve the goals and actions of the City’s Sustainability Plan.

For more information, plan to attend one of two public information sessions being held Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at City Hall.  All are welcome.

1.      12:00 -1:00 p.m., Parkdale Room, 2nd floor
2.      5:00 – 6:00 p.m., Parkdale Room, 2nd floor

“It’s been very encouraging to see the degree of enthusiasm for this project,” said Laura MacPherson, the City’s Sustainability Coordinator. “We look forward to supporting local efforts and celebrating local expertise that has already begun work on some of our community’s goals and actions outlined in our Sustainability Plan.”

Non-profit organizations and associations in Prince Edward Island are invited to nominate an outstanding volunteer for special recognition.The selected outstanding volunteers will be recognized at the Voluntary Resource Council’s annual Breakfast Gala to be held in October.

Nominations should include: the name and contact information of the volunteer and the organization/association, the mission of the organization/association, and a description of the contributions of this individual.

Nominations can be submitted by email to vrc@eastlink.ca, or by mail to Voluntary Resource Council, 81 Prince Street, Charlottetown, PEI C1A 4R3. The deadline for nominations will be June 15th, 2012.

6. PEIBWA Upcoming Events

Lunch and Learn – Charlottetown

“The Anti-Social Network: Should You ‘Friend’ Employees or Blog About Work?”
Presented by: Constance Robinson – HRA

To borrow a sentiment from Spiderman, ‘With great power comes great responsibility.’ The communication power of on-line social networks not only has the potential for great branding and marketing power through your employees and clients, it also has the potential for risk and liability for employers. Personal and professional boundaries blur when we post information on the internet. This actually raises the bar on assessing the kinds of information and sharing that we put into the either.

Join Constance as she explores some of the workplace challenges of social networking, and best practices for the workplace.
