Dear Environment Committee & Wilderness Committee members and friends,

This message is from the WCWC Mid Island Chapter. I haven't been able to send out a group email for a while because of my computer not cooperating with email lists, so I am sending out this urgent notice through Ronda Murdock and hopefully you will all receive this news. The Western Canada Wilderness Committee and the Qualicum Beach Environment Committee lists may be combined for this effort, so please let me know if you prefer to only receive information for the Environment Committee or only for the Wilderness Committee and we will work those requests into our re-organizing and re-activating of our email lists.

Below is an important notice about an event happening in Qualicum Beach tomorrow (Sat. Feb. 28 @ 1:30 pm) to protest the logging on the island in the Englishman River and now beside the border of Englishman River Provincial Park sent out from the newly-formed Arrowsmith Parks and Land-Use Council (APLUC), followed by a press release from WCWC, followed by the press release from APLUC. To view photos, please go to cathedralgrovecanyon.com.
Hope to see you there. Please bring signs, as the signs convey the message of the importance of the issues that matter to you.
