TRINITY UNITED CONCERT SERIES TO FEATURE PHASE II AND FRIENDS IN A REMEMBRANCE DAY SPECIAL: Phase II and Friends will take to the stage at Trinity United Church Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 7:30PM. This Remembrance Day Special is a two-part show which features a script with the emphasis on the tragedy of war as well as honouring the many men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. The music is varied but not the “same old” stuff. You’ll hear songs by John McDermott, Gordon Lightfoot along with traditional songs like Waltzing Matilda as well as the theme of Billy Jack, called “One Tin Soldier”. You will also hear a few protest tunes, as well as a couple of poems. The second part of the show will feature a sing along highlighting some of the old familiar tunes from the war years. The Phase II team has worked very hard on this show to entertain, educate and inform you. They believe they owe much to those who fought and they try very hard to do a program they would be proud of.

Cooper Institute and the PEI Action Team for Migrant Workers Rights are raising funds to support a migrant worker. Maria is a temporary foreign worker in a seafood plant. She arrived in May, and this is her first season in Canada In July, she realized she was pregnant and feared the company would return her to her country of origin. She comes from a tiny place in Mexico. Her husband is a carpenter, and with the help of their oldest daughter, he takes care of their four children of 2, 7, 13 and 15 years old in her absence. Both parents had to withdraw from school at an early age, and the family lives in a precarious financial situation. She came to Canada, to secure a better future for her family.
She is returning to Mexico in mid-October, when her pregnancy is at seven months. Unfortunately, she is not eligible for any benefits from the Canadian government because her work permit and social insurance number expire the day her contract ends. She won’t be able to apply for benefits in her country either because she has been following-up her pregnancy in another country and, under the current system in Mexico, you lose health coverage in these cases. We are working with the consulate to get her health care coverage when she returns, but there is no guarantee the consulate will succeed in these negotiations. This is not normally the role of Cooper Institute, we have had several cases that required our intervention, and individuals who required financial support. We will receive any contribution of money or clothes for her child and her twins. She especially needs money, to help her prepare for the arrival of her two new daughters. We would appreciate your support.
To donate: Send a cheque (payable to Cooper Institute – put Migrant Workers’ Emergency Fund on the memo line) or cash, with your name and address attached, to Cooper Institute, 81 Prince St., Charlottetown. A charitable receipt is available for tax purposes.
