Hosted by WUSC and the Rotaract Club of UPEI, What Tomorrow Brings is an award-winning documentary directed by Beth Murphy. The film tells the story of a group of Afghan girls as they fight to gain an education in a village recently freed from Taliban control.

Admission is free, but there will be donations accepted at the door. Any amount can make a difference in someone's life.

Did you know that it is illegal to travel with dogs, and other companion animals, unsecured in the back of a pickup truck? Are you aware that cosmetic surgery on animals, such as tail docking in dogs, cattle, and horses, or ear cropping in dogs, is prohibited? These regulations—and more—are part of the new PEI Animal Welfare Act, passed into law in 2017.

How does the Act impact Islanders and their animals? Dr. Alice Crook, Coordinator of the Sir James Dunn Animal Welfare Centre at AVC, will provide a “big picture” of the Act, focusing on the evolution of a distressed-based model to a standard–of-care model. Dwight Thompson, PEI Department of Agriculture and Forestry, will speak about the rights and responsibilities of owners, and Mike Gilbertson, PEI Humane Society, will focus on how the Society handles animal welfare complaints.

Everyone is welcome. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.

For information, contact (902) 566-0589 or upei.ca/avc.
