What are Your Thoughts About the Canadian Flag? Invitation to a National Conversation
In this Year of Canada 150 we've launched a national—and indeed international—conversation on what the flag means to people. Please join in. Send us your thoughts in words, pictures or videos. What do you feel the flag stands for and what does it mean to you? Keep the words to under 150 and the videos to under 60 seconds and we'll post them. The only requirements are that you be respectful and you post in English or French so they can have the widest reach.
Please send them to: Flag Project Coordinator, Pearson Centre: firstname.lastname@example.org
This conversation culminates on Canada Day July 1, although the site will remain open after that.Learn more.

What Progressives Are Saying
The significant contributions made by Canadian co-operatives to their local and regional economies show that they can profit financially while holding true to their fundamental values of self-help, equity, equality and sustainability.
