BURNABY MOUNTAIN RESISTANCE
This event is for those wishing to watch the newest edit of the documentary “Burnaby Mountain Resistance: How It Went Down” Part 1 & Part 2, directed by Jakub Markiewicz. There will also be a public debrief/reflection on figuring out what went right, what went wrong, and which mistakes we need to learn from.

TRUTH & RECONCILIATION IN IMPERIALIST CANADA
Join us for a discussion on the history and repercussions of the TRC. The aim of this event is to offer a critical analysis of the program by outlining its shortcomings and benefits. We do not wish to uphold a singular perspective but to simply open up dialogue on the issue.

There are fewer cobblestones to navigate coming from Abbott as opposed to Carrall. The washroom is not fully WC accessible, the doorway is about 27 inches wide.
