Wow!! Some fantastic news: Today the resolution calling on the BC government to protect Vancouver Island's remaining old-growth forests was passed at the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities (AVICC) AGM, the umbrella organization of coastal municipalities! Thanks to Metchosin councillor and renowned forest ecologist Andy MacKinnon for drafting the resolution and for Moralea Milne and other councillors from Metchosin - and today councillors all over the coast - for supporting the resolution! This is a big leap forward in our campaign to end old-growth logging on Vancouver Island and beyond and to ensure a sustainable second-growth forest industry instead.
