A medieval replica of King Arthur's legendary round table, hanging in Winchester Castle. The table features the Tudor Rose at its centre, with the outer design portraying Henry VIII as King Arthur on his throne, surrounded by 24 places, each bearing the name of one of the legendary Knights of the Round Table of King Arthur's court.

Blind people are underestimated by many and exploited by manipulative parts of society. This week we will discuss an article from one of our passionate supporters Thelma Fayle “Guiding the Sighteds by the Heartstrings” where she expresses her outrage at bad advertising, a reason for and method of this exploitation and its negative effects on us and on helplessly loyal guide dogs.

The morning will begin with the weekly COVID-19 checkin followed by a discussion. Calls take place from 10:00AM to 11:00AM Pacific (1PM to 2PM Eastern).

The Pacific Training Centre for the Blind and COBD: Camp Bowen are hosting round-table discussions on blindness and Deafblindness-related topics each Wednesday in an effort to support Canadians who are blind, low vision, and Deafblind from across the country during the COVID-19 pandemic. These gatherings are open to all Canadians who are blind, low vision, or Deafblind and one does not need to be affiliated with either of the sponsoring organizations in order to participate. These virtual events are intended to promote friendship, connection and sharing of resources and ideas.

You can join the roundtables, which are now available on Zoom and standard telephones by either “giving us a call” and pressing 8 or by joining us on Zoom.
