Also on the program, we’ll hear from Alexis Bunten, the featured speaker at tonight’s Evening at Egan lecture “Lessons from Indigenous Tourism for a Regenerative Future.” The Cancer Connection will be here to promote their Annual Health Forum, and CBJ Parks and Rec give us a preview of Halloween Skate and the Douglas Ghost Walk events happening this weekend.
