BITS and pieces

The fight to overturn a provincial permit granted to South Island Aggregates to import contaminated soil onto their property in the Shawnigan Lake watershed has gone to youtube, with a whiteboard created by Lisa Dymond. To see the short video, go to www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gaq0St6Aag

There was also a rally at the company’s Stebbings Road facility Monday morning with national Green Party leader Elizabeth May in attendance.

 

 

The Growing Together Young Parent program is holding an open house on Friday, June 19 from 10-11:30 a.m. to celebrate the retirement of outgoing director Kathy Payne and to welcome new Director Ocean Kneeland.

There will be snacks and beverages, and people are invited to RSVP to 250-748-9754 or growing@shaw.ca At a meeting Friday night, members of the Land Conservancy of BC defeated a special resolution to amend the Society’s bylaws that would have opened doors to a private sale of Wildwood Ecoforest near Nanaimo.

 

 

The bylaw amendment is necessary in order to TLC to transfer or sell inalienable properties as per their Plan of Arrangement to replay creditors.

TLC has been under court-supervised creditor protection since 2013, and has been trying to repay its debts while preserving environmentally significant properties.

"We are relieved that, by defeating this bylaw amendment, Wildwood remains protected for the time being," said Jessica Snider, Wildwood Protector’s spokesperson.

"But the struggle to save Wildwood isn’t over until it is transferred to a not-forprofit charitable trust or society."
