Barrie Family Welcomes Ukrainian Refugees, 2022


On the morning of February 24, 2022, the invasion of Ukraine and the cruelty of Russian forces shocked the world. Ukrainian men stayed to protect the country, while many women and children fled to protect their families. Here in Barrie, with the help of her sister Helen Ellement, Cathy Locke offered her home to a few of the families, providing respite without cost. With the help of the Kiwanis Club of Barrie, these women and their families have helped dozens of refugees of this terrible war.

We would like to thank the following sponsors of the Ontario Community Awareness Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a not-for-profit truly local voice to you and your neighbours. They also enable our crew to be able to continue providing donated services to promote local benevolent community groups and charities based in The City of Barrie, the Town of Innisfil, and the Township of Oro-Medonte.

Five Points Media has recently transitioned to become an active part of a new provincially registered not-for-profit corporation called the Ontario Community Awareness Network. To the best of our knowledge, ours will be the only community channel of its kind in the province if not the entire country.

We are looking for new programming ideas, with our focus being mostly on fringe and minority groups whose members are mostly ignored by mainstream media. These include, but are not limited to, the Indigenous population, People of Colour, members of the LGBTQQIP2SAA community, and people of various cultures and religions.

We will continue to donate all video and media services to registered charities and benevolent not-for-profit groups that promote unity and support all members of the community. Our eventual goal will be to expand our programming to cover all of Ontario through a network of regional bureau facilities. This service will help all people in Ontario to learn about each other and work in unity.
