This month we have a guest presenter speaking on First Nations, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) Issues and Canada. Angie Knowlton is a Masters student researching Indigenous issues in Canada, focusing on wardship (Residential school and British home children) in Canada. 

Every month we have interesting meetings discussing science, logic and compassion. Check out our website at http://www.cohumanists.ca/ to see our topic list and upcoming meetings. Details to be announced.

We are planning a #GodDebate in #Barrie on March 30th! Hopefully it won't be snowed in. #BarrieLife #atheist vs #christian #BarrieOntario

Topic: This month we will be watching two videos about how atheists, skeptics and Humanists talk both to each other and to outsiders. The first is about not being a jerk: Phil Plait's TAM presentation titled "Don't Be A Dick" speaks about how you win influence and end debate rather than scoring cheap points and convincing no one. The second is about building the type of community we want to live in: Richard Carrier will discuss how the atheist movement (which is gaining more traction than the Humanist movement) is having to deal with harassment and censorship from other atheists.

Note: Due to a scheduling conflict Other People's Children will be moved to June's meeting.

Pre-meeting dinner will be held at Kelsey's in the Walmart parking lot at Bayfield and Livingstone at 5 PM. Any members and guests are welcome to join for some Humanist company. If you know you are coming please RSVP so we get the right number of seats.
