Hello Calgary Journal Subscribers!

We’ve almost made it to the weekend! If you’re looking for ways to pay your respects on Remembrance Day tomorrow, we have a round-up of events from across the city.

We also have an exciting event of our own to share. As part of our project on student housing, the Journal will be hosting a Student Housing Forum and Pizza Party on Nov. 27!

Our journalist-in-residence, Christina Frangou, will lead a discussion with students and experts on the housing crisis at Pizza Bob’s. All are welcome to attend, as well as indulge in free pizza!

RSVP online to let us know you’re coming.
