Report on Co-op Week

Dear Friends,

Last week was Co-op week in Canada. Co-operators had the chance to gather, reflect and celebrate across our great country. Below you will find a few paragraphs written in my ongoing effort to keep you updated of my work on the Co-op file. In addition to my short report below, I would like to point out that some of my liberal colleagues visited co-operatives in their regions and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau visited the Hugh Garner Co-Op in Toronto.

Help Celebrate Co-op Week 2013!

Dear Friends,

Did you know that 18 million Canadians are members of at least one of the 9,000 plus co-operatives across this country?

While we often hear references to maximizing profit and wealth in the context of “the economy”, originally the term was more grounded. It was about living within ones means, or about parsimony and thrift.
