The first of 8 events on the theme of Grace & Truth in Canadian Politics and the launch of the Stand Up for Freedom Canada Campaign was held on Friday night in Cloverdale, BC and was met with a large and supportive audience. Speakers Mark Penninga and Neil Dykstra introduced the campaign and encouraged the audience to share it with their neighbours, co-workers, and aquaintences.
Many of othe attendees stayed for up to an hour after it was over, meeting with the guest organizations that had a presence there and taking advantage of the food provided by Cloverdale ARPA.
The following day and thousands of Km’s east, the first ever ARPA Ontario Conference was held. The event drew about 40 people from Orangeville, Toronto, Elora, Burlington and Hamilton. Although we haven’t recieved many details yet, the pictures indicate it was a success and that it accomplished the goal of getting Ontarions to strategize about how to promote local ARPA’s throughout their province. Dr. C VanDam was the guest speaker – stay tuned for the audio recording to be shared on the ARPA website in the months to come.
