As many of you know, by the time you read this note I will no longer be Executive Director. I will remain involved in the conservation movement as long as I am able – putting my energy toward defending nature, moving off a carbon-based economy and reminding people that their health is directly linked to a healthy environment. I thank you for your confidence in Sierra Club BC, and please continue to support the good work we do.

Completing the World’s First International Peace Park
The Flathead Valley is unmatched in North America for the variety and density of carnivores and its extraordinary diversity of plants and animals. It remains one of the last wild river basins in southern Canada. However, there are no legislated wildlife sanctuaries in the Southern Rockies.

The sun rose today, as it always does, but we woke up to a profoundly changed world. A Trump presidency casts a frightening shadow over women, First Nations, people of colour, immigrants, the LGBTQ community and those whose faith sets them apart. It casts a shadow over Canada and generations to come.

It is important throughout the year to ‘take stock’ and contemplate our lives, our fortunes and the plight of those who are less fortunate. Perhaps this is especially true at Thanksgiving.

On July 28, we were shocked and saddened to learn that DFO has issued permits for continued construction of the Site C dam, despite strong opposition by Treaty 8 First Nations, multiple court challenges, and an unprecedented Statement of Concern from over 350 scientists and the Royal Academy of Canada, who unanimously called on the federal government to revisit the Order in Council approving Site C, and to suspend the issuance of further permits pursuant to the Order in Council until it has completed an analysis of the project’s impact on Aboriginal and Treaty rights.

When I read that Richard Louv had published Vitamin N: The Essential Guide to a Nature-Rich Life, it caused me to pause and reflect on my history with the child and nature movement.

Once in a while the earth is blessed with a special person. Such a person was Dr. Chris Pielou who passed away recently in Comox.
