Mentioned in the April, 1977 issue of TheVoice by JimMacSwain: the MOVEment for citizens voice and action began with Encounter Week in Halifax, February, 1970; "a coalition that encourages citizen participation in decisions affecting the community." Some concerns at the moment are:

  1. Waterfront Development
  2. Neighbourhood Planning
  3. Halifax Municipal Development Plan (Citizen's Participation Working Committee)
  4. Ad Hoc Committee on Education
  5. Access to Information
  6. Day Care
  7. Housing Co-ops
  8. Sex Discrimination in Employment
