Rideau Institute Staff on Holiday!

HouseofCommons

We have amazing staff, interns and volunteers at the Rideau Institute and we could not get along without them.  They help us in so many ways from research, to media scans, to blog drafting, to event preparation, to press conferences, to public outreach and of course to helping us with donor services.

Just one recent example. As well as doing superb research on the situation in Egypt for a panel presentation by RI President Peggy Mason at the World Social Forum in Montreal on 11 August, volunteer Ali Hassan was also Chief Navigator on the drive to and from Ottawa.

As President of the Rideau Institute, it is my great pleasure to give our staff and volunteers a well-deserved one week holiday, starting Saturday 13 August. That means no blogs and no social media posts until Monday 22 August.” Peggy Mason
