By
Benjamin Wood

The Briargreen Community Association hosted its first Annual General Meeting since the start of the Pandemic at the Briargreen Public School library on October 19, 2022. To a room filled with residents, the volunteers behind organization introduced themselves, touched on issues affecting the community, and solicited ideas to help set its direction for the future. The second-half of the meeting welcomed all candidates running for city Councillor in College Ward, as well as candidates vying for Trustee of both public and Catholic school boards to share their priorities for our ward and answer questions. The Q&A was moderated by BCA President Rob Welch and Volunteer Coordinator Γ‰milie Coyle.
