  2. Such magnificent and diverse works to honour these forests! Hard to express all the emotions that overcome oneself while in these untouched spaces. Its pure life, pure love. Art has that ability to bring us closer to each other and to our deepest natural selves. Looking forward to returning to Eden Grove soon, hopefully with paints in tow

  5. The Eden Grove Artist in Residence Program lies at the dynamic intersection of art, ecology and activism. IN A TENT A FEW MINUTES WALK from one of the blockades aimed at preventing logging in the Fairy Creek area, artists are at work. Or they might be out in a nearby clearcut or magical old-growth forest—taking photographs, painting or drawing, carving a mask, gathering ideas for performances and music compositions or materials for collage. This unique program—the Eden Grove Artists in Residence Program—is the brainchild and labour of love of curator Jessie Demers. Demers desc
  6. BC auditor general flags BC’s inadequate management of lands, fish and wildlife BC IS FALLING SHORT on its commitment to protect fish and wildlife habitat, according to a report released by the Province’s auditor general on May 11, 2021. The audit of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development’s Conservation Lands Program identified several deficiencies, including: a lack of strategic direction ensuring government collaboration with Indigenous communities; a failure to sufficiently monitor and enforce rules on conserved lands; and a need t

  9. 'An old-growth forest is a rare and benevolent living shrine that will bring back people from around the world, time and time again. Port Renfrew knows that, and has called for a moratorium on old-growth logging in the region' Statements like this need to be more widely publicized across BC; Mayors like Gaby Wickstrom and desperate communities like Port McNeill need to see that being a forestry dependent community is NOT a good thing anymore, it is long past time to diversify, quit flogging dead horses and logging empty, over clear cut forests. Experts claim 1979 was the yea
  10. Interesting, the environmental benefits are clear. However, we were looking into installing solar on Pender, but when we calculated it out it would take about 20 years or so to break even on the investment as panels are still expensive and hydro is cheap in BC (including selling back to the grid). The quotes we got were around $20k, and if you want a battery storage option, add another $15-20k. Solar powered hot water on the other hand, does make great economic sense for us as the install should be around $8k. So, that looks like the way we will go. Cheers Bernie

    Permission to Grieve is a series of art-based online, intimate conversations and breathing exercises that offer space to have conversations about grief. We believe that everyone should be able to talk about grief, not just with counsellors. During the global pandemic, personal grief has increased for the entire CRD community, as individuals have and currently are mourning things like losing their job, deaths, and just everyday changes and routines that are now lost. These major life events are uprooting individual’s once grounded existence and causing grief to happen in isolated ways. This pro

  14. This article says so many profound things, but what punched me in the gut was the mention of 'public indifference'. This is what scares me the most. It's so obvious that Horgan has lied and is playing ALL of us for idiots. That alone should incense all of us.
  15. Thanks for your comment. Readers may want to review Verhoeven's judgment, which I reviewed here. In his consideration of whether Teal had suffered "Irreparable Harm," Verhoeven restated the economic arguments that had been presented to him in affidavits prepared by Teal's legal team. While the above commenter would have readers believe the law is too mysterious for anybody but lawyers to understand, there is no mystery about how Verhoeven arrived at his decision that irreparable harm had been done—its in his judgment. But the numbers he uses in his consideration, which were provided
  16. This is what happens when a "journalist" tries to write on a legal ruling but is ignorant of the law. "Irreparable harm" has a distinct and unique legal definition for injunctive relief. It need not be quantified. Broadland ought to leave the criticisms of legal rulings to lawyers.

    Gage Gallery exhibition: Leslie Bell dives into a conceptual exploration of the ocean's deep space, with a side trip to the real world of plankton. Part art exhibit, part science fair, part personal journey; this exhibition of paintings, prints and digital media contemplates and speculates on the hidden world that surrounds us.
  18. Why isn't the RCMP charging these thugs with mischief and some of them with assault? Where are Western Forest Products, Teal Jones and premier Horgan in denouncing this violence?
  19. To add insult to injury, CBC is characterizing this blatant racist ASSAULT as an "altercation."

    Hosted by the School of Environment & Sustainability, the Building Back Better webinar series is all about how we can take advantage of the global pause we’ve experienced due to COVID-19, and radically shift and accelerate how we address the most pressing issue of our times: climate change. While for decades the climate crisis may have seemed like an abstract issue to the average bystander, the impacts are becoming harder and harder to ignore. Tipping points such as warming in the arctic, ocean currents, tropical forest ecosystem collapse, and monsoon patterns are some of the indicato

    Wait here while I slip into something more comfortable is a solo exhibition by visual artist Graham Wiebe that explores themes of solace through a satirical scope.

Upstairs balcony. Opening Night : Friday May 14, 7-9 (non-social)
