Description

Time/Date: Tuesday Nov. 28, from 7 - 8:30 pm

Location: Alix Goolden Hall (907 Pandora Ave), Free admission

The new NDP provincial government and its governing agreement with the BC Greens gives us the greatest opportunity in BC's history to protect old-growth forests. Now is the time to speak up and demand action! Join the AFA and a diversity of compelling speakers on Tuesday, November 28th, from 7 to 8:30 pm to learn how the BC government can protect our old-growth forests while ensuring a sustainable second-growth forest industry that works for our ecosystems, First Nations, forestry-dependent communities and the people of BC. Your participation makes all the difference and will send a strong signal to the government that we want bold action now!

Key Speakers:

Arnold Bercov - President of the Public and Private Workers of Canada

Gisele Martin - Tla-o-qui-aht cultural educator with the Raincoast Education Society

Dr. Andy MacKinnon - Metchosin City Councillor and forest botanist
