OTTAWA — For a change, lawyers will be telling the jokes.
Law students from the University of Ottawa are organizing a fundraising comedy show in support of Ottawa ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), an organization of low to moderate income families uniting communities for justice.
The show will take place Thursday, Feb. 7, at 8 p.m. at The Draft Pub, 801 King Edward Ave., 2nd floor. The cover charge is $10 and all proceeds are going to ACORN.

(Toronto, ON) – To find out where Ontario’s next premier stands on some of the issues that matter to low and moderate income communities across the province, Ontario ACORN have distributed a survey to all of the candidates for leader of the Ontario Liberal Party. The results are disappointing.
Ontario ACORN’s survey asked candidates, on behalf of more than 20,000 members of ACORN across Ontario, to make clear commitments to deal with high remittance fees, unsafe and unaffordable housing, Ontario’s inadequate minimum wage, and inhumane welfare and disability support systems.
The local chapter of ACORN Canada organized a Stand for Housing rally in Uptown New Westminster on Jan. 12 to highlight the need for housing.
