Our Thanksgiving Gift
By Bob Peart
October 7, 2016
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.
These days our lives seem to be overtaken with the pressures of family life, the demands of social media, and the growing concern that climate change threatens the economy, environment and society as we know it.
On the other hand, British Columbia is a gift to the world with our globally significant wildlife and web of life. There are few places on Earth that are as blessed with the water, air and natural world that surrounds us and keeps us healthy.
At Sierra Club BC, we are working hard to defend this gift of nature and to put forward a message of hope and opportunity. We will continue to oppose those who disregard the warnings on the horizon as well as continue to speak out about the necessity of moving toward a post-carbon solution so families, communities and nature can prosper together.
So on Thanksgiving Day I hope you ‘take stock’ and are able to get outside and enjoy the healthy gift of nature.
