Katimavik SOS

Anyone who values Katimavik youth program needs to speak up - now

I am writing to encourage everyone to write to our Conservative Member of Parliament, James Lunney regarding the cancellation of the Katimavik program for youths 17 to 21.

The program has been in existence since 1977 and is a valuable asset to the youth of our country.

The program will end with the current youth already in the program in 2013 and has suspended the starting date in July, 2012 for the next group of youth.

I am sure there are a lot of disappointed young people who were planning to start Katimavik this summer.

I would encourage all voters to remember this cut, especially young people, when they cast their votes in the next election. Remember young people, your votes count!
