The book is titled "13 Ways to Kill Your Community" but it offers solutions too. That's why author Doug Griffiths is coming to Moose Jaw June 6th at the request of Mayor Fraser Tolmie and the Chamber of Commerce.

Griffiths was a popular speaker at this year's SUMA Convention and got a lot of municipal leaders talking. Tolmie is one of them and saw the need to bring the author here to talk to community leaders and residents.

"We felt that it would be beneficial to have him come and do part of our strategic plan but further, I felt that it was important for him to speak to our community and to hear about the challenges that other communities are facing."

Failing to take responsibility and failing to cooperate are just two items touched on in the book according to our mayor. "We need to take reasonability and we do point fingers at everyone else, but we need have to take the responsibility for our actions and decisions. That's what leadership is about."

Councillor Dawn Luhning took in the presentation at the SUMA convention and said there are several items on the list of 13 that Moose Jaw is currently doing such as failure to co-operate and ignoring water quality. Luhning said she took a lot of notes during the presentation by Griffiths back in February and at the time, said she hoped he would be able to come to Moose Jaw.

Tickets to the event are $25 and available at the Chamber office, but space is limited.
