Thanks to Winnipeg immigration lawyer Bashir Khan for bringing this event to our attention.
The Winnipeg Branch of the Canadian International Council is holding an event on Tuesday October 31 at 5:30 pm, at the Jekyll & Hyde Pub, 437 Stradbrook Avenue.
Dr Wil Hoverd will speak on “Five Eyes” from a New Zealand perspective. The smallest Five Eyes country has a thing or two to teach Canada about how a small country can hit above its weight in the world.
Free to attend and no RSVP is required. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The “Five Eyes” refer to an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. These countries are bound by the multilateral UKUSA Agreement, a treaty for joint cooperation in signals intelligence.

What are you doing on Australia Day? If you have nothing else planned for Thursday January 26, think about going to Miss Browns at 288 William Street in downtown Winnipeg.
Drop in anytime between 7:30 am and 3:00 pm, stay a while, and enjoy the deliciousness of their menu, which will include meat pies and other Aussie favs.
Have you tried their Aussie burger yet? 🙂
Miss Browns is owned and operated by Jenny (Canadian) and Steve (Australian), and they have an excellent menu that many of us have already sampled. Every January 26, they put on a slightly more downunder flavour for everyone to enjoy.
Last year a group of us from the DUCW went there for lunch, and are planning a repeat this year, so stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, head to Miss Browns on Thursday. Their meat pies are great, mate!
DUCW members are invited to attend a brunch at Miss Browns Hot Pressed Sandwich & Coffee Co on Sunday April 10 at 10:00 am. Continue reading
