The Montreal Council of Women has received numerous notices about the significant rally taking place on May 14th about the concerns with Bill 96. For your interest, please take note of the following details:

Please do not sign up more than once.

People will congregate at Dawson College around 10:30 a.m. and then walk together to Premier François Legault’s office at the corner of Sherbrooke and McGill College. A handful of speakers will address the participants. We must stand up for an inclusive Quebec and show our opposition to Bill 96.

From Lufa Farms:

This Saturday, May 14, join us in our Ahuntsic greenhouse for a hot sauce workshop! Led by chef, culinary stylist, and fermentation expert Blake Mackay, you’ll make your own hot sauce using our very own fresh rooftop-grown peppers. You can adapt it to the spice level that works for you and leave with what you make. Run, don’t walk - there are only a few spots left. And if it’s too late, there’s always our monthly (hot) yoga in the greenhouse or our most recent addition, a STEM workshop!

Book your spot here: Community activities (lufa.com)

Mystic Music from Pakistan:

Kabir Centre, in collaboration with Festival Accès Asie, are pleased to present Mystic Music from Pakistan in Soulful Qawwali with Abdullah Manzoor Niazi & Waqar Niazi Ensemble. Qawwali is a musical genre, popular in India and Pakistan, which expresses Sufi devotion. The word literally means “speech music” and originally comes from the Arabic qawwâl, a word meaning, “loquacious, who speaks well, who knows how to speak well”.
