As President of the Simcoe-Grey branch for PIPSC, please accept this as my personal invitation for you to join us at our AGM on April 11, 2023.  We hope to provide a method for you to gain some insight into these issues and any local concerns that Simcoe Grey branch members may have wanted to voice.
