Friday, May 14 – PROTEST/ Gift Giving Ceremony for the AVATAR GROVE and BC’s ANCIENT FORESTS at MLA Ida Chong’s Oak Bay Office!
12:00 – 12:30 PM
2186 Oak Bay Ave. (between Hampshire Rd. and Wilmot Pl.), Victoria
Come to a brief petition drive, protest and gift giving ceremony at BC Liberal MLA Ida Chong's office in Oak Bay, Victoria.
The spectacular Avatar Grove of ancient cedars and firs, near Port Renfrew, is threatened with being logged, as are millions of hectares of ancient forest across British Columbia.
MLA and cabinet minister Ida Chong has towed the BC Liberal government’s ridiculous party line that ancient forests are not endangered on Vancouver Island and that raw log exports should continue.
Make your voice heard with the newly-formed Oak Bay and Gordon Head Ancient Forest Committee and the Ancient Forest Alliance! For more information contact: Benna Keoghoe at firstname.lastname@example.org
