Join us in Port Hardy, Campbell River, Parksville & Courtenay
The vast rainforests of Vancouver Island have supported life and abundance for millennia.
But after decades of extensive logging, these ecosystems have been degraded, and the communities and First Nations that depend on them are paying the price.
We want to hear from impacted forest communities on north and central Vancouver Island, so next week we’re hitting the road with our friends at Sierra Club BC. We hope you can join us at a town hall meeting:
Can’t make it? If you have friends and family in Port Hardy, Campbell River, Parksville or the Comox Valley, please invite them to an event.
Each event will include a short presentation on the impacts of old-growth logging and the importance of forestry industry on Vancouver Island.
But most of all, we want to hear from you! It’s time to have a frank discussion about how we can protect coastal forests and coastal communities.
Hard work and determination have made forestry possible on Vancouver Island. There is a better way forward and we can get there together.
For healthy forests and sustainable communities,
Torrance Coste | Vancouver Island Campaigner
