Hey Victoria residents,

Want to discuss your ideas for what Victoria City Council should / shouldn’t be doing over the next four years?

I’ll be at Little June tomorrow, Tuesday Nov 1, from 8:00am to 9:00am. On the corner of Gladstone Ave at Fernwood. Drop by and give me a piece of your mind!

By the way, I’m thinking about doing this in a few places around town – Gigi’s Cafe, Spiral Cafe, Habit, Hey Happy, Koffi …

Also maybe at different times of the day, so I can connect with a wider variety of people. Email me your suggestions 🙂
