Your top priority this week should be attending the monthly meeting of the Corktown Residents & Business Association this Tuesday, November 5. Our special guest will be Councillor Pam McConnell. A full agenda will be posted in advance. As aways, we’ll be meeting at the Dominion on Queen at Queen & Sumach.
And if you’re not planning to rush home to watch the U.S. election results roll in like a giant nerd, attendees may want to stick around the main room at the Dominion for “Working Class Hero,” a night of protest songs.
The official reveal event for the new Corktown Neighbourhood Mural, located just west of Sackville Park, will take place this Thursday, November 8 at 10 a.m. Come out to show your appreciation for this new piece of Corktown by local artist Gary Smith.
