Evening with John McKnight

As a Social Justice Centre representative, I attended a evening with John McKnight, who is well known as a mentor of Barack Obama, at that Newton Public Libary today. Lots of passionate activists and service providers were in attendance, and also Surrey Councillor Vera LeFranc --who supports harm reduction! And also our old colleague, Steve Dooley, who is now the executive director of the Surrey SFU campus. There were even two kids who love participating in the Surrey community gardens and who excitedly told us about how "when you plant something you get to see it grow!"  --Mike Ma
