"The services offered by Leo Campos Aldunez & the Community Networks Group are unique and effective, and have become a primary part of my small business network over the past 5 years. Leo is very easy to work with, prompt, personable, thorough, and most importantly for my small business, Leo gets results. My investment in Leo's services is always returned multi-fold. I recommend him to others without hesitation."

Dawn Bissett, Owner

"Leo Campos is an intellectually stimulating personality who loves to engage in literary & political conversations as well as in taking action on issues of the day. Leo has used his passion and concern for political and social problems of our time to inform the public on community engagement activities which he promotes through his social e-marketing network. He has run this service very responsibly for a number of years. I have used it on many occasions to publicize my professional/volunteer activities and I have never had cause to be disappointed."

Pearl Bennett, President, Caribbean Women Network
Executive Director, Mill Woods Seniors Activity Centre

"In Leo Campos Aldunez I had found a friend/colleague - a person I could trust & share ideas. In 2008 we collaborated in producing a documentary (MACHOS: Journeys of Self-Discovery with Immigrant Men) exploring immigrant issues specific to men across multi-ethnic communities. I strongly recommend his home-based consulting endeavour in social marketing/media works to anyone interested in being connected to a large community of caring individuals & organizations."

SummerSUMMER begun in our country|province with some intense and much needed rains, helping gradually to contain the wildfires which ravaged the city of Fort McMurray, just a few weeks ago, located about 450Km north-east of Edmonton. Considerable amounts of resources and much collaborative talents and patience is slowly bringing it back to some level of normalcy. Fort McMurray is also known as the “Oil Capital of Canada” – the source of the “Oil Sands” or “Tar Sands” as others prefer to call it … Whatever you choose, the reality on the ground is that the wildfires have caused much pain to its 80 thousands inhabitants; families, kids, oil workers and ancillary/service sectors. Few have been unaffected in some form or another and this in an already challenging low oil pricing marketplace. In any case, teams are on the ground assessing the damage, clean-up crews working diligently and city personnel day-by-day getting the city safe/livable again.

SOLIDARITY – the generous response to this tragedy by thousands of Canadians, via the Canadian Red Cross has been remarkable – vast sums of monies have been raised by this relief organization matched by both the provincial and federal governments. Funds have been dispensed to evacuees at various locations. The whole country is pulling together at this hour of need – and even politicians of various political families have found common grounds to be civil in the name of the common good. Of course, many other organizations have come to the fore as well, for instance in my city, the Edmonton Emergency Relief Services Society has been extremely busy; faith and cultural communities have also shown their concern and empathy. If you wish to do so as well, may we suggest you consider the Fort McMurray United Way as another option to support in the long days of recovery ahead.

THE REBUILD – While it is hard to imagine at the moment that things will get better, they will. Then a new opportunity for policymakers at all levels of governments; civil society organizations; business, environmental activists/think-tanks, labour, faith organizations, to re-visit our economic structures, our heavy dependence on fossil fuels; there has to be another/different path for Alberta and indeed Canada to pursuit a prosperous future for its people, for doing more of the same is recipe for disaster. In this light our province has put forward a significant Green Action Plan - positioning Alberta to play a forward-looking role stewarding our finite fossil-based energy sources towards a greener future. It’s good to see that for both Premier Rachel Notley and PM Justin Trudeau agree that moving towards a greener energy economy is the way forward. The challenge for all levels of governments, including municipalities is how to get there. Difficult conversations unfolding in the weeks ahead; in light of climate change we must have them.

THE FUTURE – Resilience and adaptation will become the “new normal” ... Meanwhile, as usual; we remain at your service. YOU and the non-profit communities we serve remain at the center of what we do. We thank you for your support and welcome your feedback; if we can be of assistance don’t hesitate to get in touch. Finally, we invite you and your friends/colleagues to subscribe to our Infomail Newsletter – and, if you appreciate this site, “like” and share it via your social networks as you see fit. You can also now follow TCNG on Twitter! Have a safe & enjoyable summer season.
