Ice Festival Skate Tomorrow
December 22, 2021
Tomorrow! Our Ice Festival Skate is on tomorrow, 12:30-1:30pm, at Pearkes Arena.
Join us tomorrow, December 23rd, at 12:30 for a skate (free skate rentals). The SKATING is on! BUT, the food and drink part is off – we are no longer permitted sharing of food and beverage inside the building. Baked goods prepared by the participants of our Douglas Street Launchpad and a juice box, will be handed out to attendees “to go”-style as they are leaving the event.
All visitors must be fully vaccinated and hand washing/sanitizing protocols are in effect.
Don’t skate? No problem, join us for a seasonal snack and some merriment.
See you there! #skatewithus

Some great stuff to help you have conversations with individuals about voting…
- It’s your right to vote.
- It’s your responsibility to vote.
- It’s your right to choose who you feel will best represent you in Canada’s next government.
- It’s your responsibility to learn about voting, about the candidates in your riding, and about the issues that are important to you and people like you.
The information below can help with answering questions you might have about the voting process. You will find Inclusion Canada’s summary of issues that are important to Canadians with disabilities. InclusionBC’s #IAmVoting info package and participation guide – plain language. List of candidates for all Vancouver Island ridings. And a Federal Election section where you can learn about the parties in a little bit more detail.
