Editor's Note: Editor's Note: Richard Marion is past president of the NFB: AE and is its current second vice-president.

On Monday May 10, 1999, the Lower Mainland Chapter hosted a meeting with Carolyn and Tony Weston of the Association of Blind Citizens of New Zealand. Carolyn Weston is one of the Vice-Presidents of the association. This meeting included representatives from the CNIB BC/Yukon Division, The Canadian Council of the Blind and Advocates for Sight Impaired Consumers. It was a very positive and successful meeting.

At this meeting, information was shared on problems and solutions that blind people in both countries have encountered.
