Ben Lemon PRC Report (Sept. 2014)


Report of the Edmonton Area Council Rep to the Prairie Region Council submitted for the September 2014 meeting. This report covers the period from the last PRC meeting.

Ben Lemon
Edmonton Area Council Rep
Prairie Region Council September 2014 

I was sworn in to Prairie Region Council in Saskatoon during PSAC Regional Convention June 29, 2014. My first official duty was to have a meeting with Oneil Carlier at the PSAC office on July 28th. Our priority is to “Reboot” the Edmonton Area Council (EAC). The EAC seems to be anemic at this point. The group needs a goal to focus on & move towards, in my opinion. I plan to call the executive members of the EAC before going to Regina to get any ideas they may have to focus on. 

We discussed possible ideas, coming up with the upcoming federal election & defeating the current Conservative government. We thought perhaps having a workshop on gaining confidence talking to MP’s & other candidates. I have since come up with a few other ideas but the upcoming federal election should be our priority at this time. 

I am looking forward in learning more & hearing other ideas at the upcoming PRC meeting in Sept. I think I may be the only new PRC member, so I have a steep learning curve ahead of me. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ben Lemon
