Nanaimo-Ladysmith MP Paul Manly is hosting a non-partisan community meeting at:
Saltair Community Centre
Friday, March 6th from 7:00 to 8:30pm.
Paul will give a brief report on his recent work in Ottawa, and then open the floor for questions on any federal issue. All community members are invited to attend.
These community meetings are scheduled twice a year throughout the riding of Nanaimo-Ladysmith. They are part of Paul’s commitment to being an accessible and accountable federal representative. More dates and locations are listed on Paul’s website at https://www.paulmanlymp.ca/events.
One question we are frequently asked is, “How is this a non-partisan event?” The answer is that Paul is there to report on his work as MP, not to talk about the Green Party. There will be no Green Party signage or literature on display at this MP hosted event. We believe it is very important that everyone feel comfortable in the meeting space, so they can hear from their MP and ask questions that are important to them.

Residents across the Cowichan Valley have the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive Community Satisfaction Survey.
Over the next four weeks, Leger Marketing will conduct a statistically valid survey that will gather data from 600 residents to gauge quality of life, delivery of programs and services, as well as how best to inform and engage the public.
Beginning Wednesday, November 20, randomly selected residents and households will be called though both landlines and cell phones. Eligible participants will have the option to complete the approximately 15-minute survey over the phone, or online through a unique, secure link sent to their email. At the end of the survey, residents have the ability to opt-in to a short follow-up email
survey related to regional health services for use by Island Health and Our Cowichan Communities Health Network, as well as enter to win a gift card for CVRD recreation facilities.
Residents who are not selected to participate in the scientific study are encouraged to complete an online version of the survey at http://cvrd.legeropinion.com. The open version of the survey
will be accessible until December 31, and will be reported separately from the statistically valid survey.
The results of both surveys will be presented to the CVRD Board of Directors in early 2020 and available for review on the CVRD website.
