The CCPA’s 30th anniversary on November 18 welcomed a full house.
We marked this special occasion with a gala dinner at the Chateau Laurier and an all-day conference at the University of Ottawa entitled Advancing Democracy and Social Justice in Canada—The Next 30 Years.
It was a who’s who of progressive thinkers, activists, and politicians:
It was a feast of ideas and entertainment, conversation and community, with many surprises.
Most of all it was an opportunity to remind ourselves that working together offers the best hope for a better world—of peace, justice, democracy and respect for the planet.
Thank you to all who attended and who watched online.
