Wed. 7:30: Regional Gov't & Police speak on Y2K

You are invited to listen and ask questions to government officials
speaking on Regional preparedness for the Year 2000 Computer Problem (Y2K).

TIME: 7:30, Wed. 27 January
PLACE: Assembly Hall, McNabb Community Centre, 180 Percy near Gladstone

Will hydro, 911, water, sewage, other regional services be affected?
If so, or if we don't know, what government contingencies should we expect?
How should we prepare ourselves and our community?

Come and learn how to: 
- determine whether authorities are answering fully on y2k. 
- seek government assistance in dealing with potential y2k disruptions. 
- organize yourself and your neighbours for y2k.

Two speakers from the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton: 

- Greg Geddes, Manager, Year 2000 Office
- Inspector Karl Erfle, Regional Police, Y2K Project


Regional y2k community strategy proposal help us organize Y2K preparedness
in our neighbourhood. It would require govenrment cooperation, and draw
upon other resources such as: 

- Community Associations
- World Wide Web
- Boulder, Colorado model of neighbourhood organizing from the Utne Y2K
Citizens Action Guide
