Sunday 20th, 1pm Forest Pain for Foreign Gain, Nanaimo
February 20 @ 1:00 pm
From Extinction Rebellion, Nanaimo: Within the next two weeks three vessels of forest oblivion are scheduled to berth at the Port of Nanaimo to load raw log exports destined to be processed on foreign shores. In January 2019 at a truck loggers convention Premier John Horgan stated, “We want to reduce the amount of logs going out, and increase the amount of jobs coming from our logs.” Extinction Rebellion Nanaimo will be taking space at 1 Port Drive (across the road from Thrifty Foods parking lot, Port Place Mall) to demand our premier live up to his words and end the trend of local mill closures and increased log exports. https://www.facebook.com/events/273952281486087
