    The weather was rainy and blustery, but inside St John’s Church Hall on October 22, the environment was welcoming and convivial as we gathered with more than 50 representatives from CFUW clubs in Eastern Ontario. The day-long conference was informative and inspiring as our guest speakers explained their 23-year quest to get a cruel social injustice – non state torture – recognized as a human rights crime in Canada.

    We owe a debt of gratitude to everyone who participated in the event including our M.P Karen MacCrimmon, Mayor Jim Watson, and Councillor Marianne Wilkinson. In addition, special mention must be made of local organizations who generously supported us with donations of goods and services. Special thanks are due to

    • Margaret Dennis, Chartwell Retirement Residences (lunch contributions)
    • Dave Fowler, General Manager, Marriot Hotels, Kanata (hotel accommodations for speakers)
    • Juan Carlos, Tim Horton’s, March Road, Kanata (morning coffee)
    • Congregation of St. John’s Anglican Church, Kanata (hall and kitchen facilities)

    Ontario Council President Sandra Thomson spent the day with us and summed up the many positive responses we received from participants at the end of the day with this message:

    CFUW Kanata held a very impressive Fall Gathering!

    I received such a warm welcome from yourself Wende and all of your Kanata members. I so much appreciated the opportunity to meet many of the Ontario East members! The Kanata ladies worked very hard to achieve a successful day. This was evident by the well-constructed & timely program , the beautiful table decorations, the delicious food, the unique crafted gift bags and the church setting - all made for a truly inspirational and thought provoking day. Jeanne & Linda’s dedication to educating us on NST [Non State Torture] shows how CFUW women can be “bigger than ourselves to make the difference.”

    Ontario East Fall Gathering

    (Click on images to enlarge them)
    CFUW Kanata was delighted to welcome representatives from all of Ontario East’s clubs to this year’s Fall Gathering. Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, Councillor Marianne Wilkinson, and Karen McCrimmon, MP for Kanata-Carleton were also in attendance as were Sandra Thompson, president Ontario Council, and Mary Partington, Regional Director, Ontario East. 

    Our guest speakers, Linda MacDonald and Jeanne Sarson, engaged us with the compelling story of their mission to change Canadian law to reflect the cruel realities of non-State torture and recognise it as a human rights crime. We were honoured to have them share their experiences gained from presenting their cause to diverse audiences in several different countries; and the successes and setbacks they have encountered along the way. Their determination and profound commitment to this cause are truly inspirational.

    Thanksgiving Bear 

    This little bear joined CFUW Kanata at Thanksgiving in 2016. She is presented to a member who has contributed something of significance to the club in recent weeks. Each month she goes home with a new caregiver. She is very quiet, and she is an excellent listener who never argues against your point of view. She is very neat and tidy and fits into your household without any fuss. She surely deserves a name. If you would like to suggest a name for her, please add it to the Discussion Forum and we can vote for our favourite name at the Christmas Party in December.
