Potluck and Work Party, Sunday Jan. 20

Please join us at the Bear Mountain Tree Sit this Sunday as we begin to expand and renovate the camp! A community member donated a truck load of recycled building materials this week, and we are making great plans, including a sound stage for a live music event. Other supporters have been brainstorming ways to either stop the interchange or delay it while we try to resolve the conflict by legal and political means.

Folks can bring a dish to pass, new ideas, great energy, friends, kids, dogs, musical instruments, and donations if they wish.

What: All-day work party, potluck and evening social
When: This Sunday, January 20, 11 am til moon rise
Where: Bear Mountain Tree Sit (scroll down for directions)
Why: To preserve a sacred cave, wetlands, and rare species
Who: All ages welcome!

The camp has a wish list, if anyone has these items to donate:

  • Good climbing rope!
  • A two-burner camp stove (propane or white gas)
  • An alternator with a diode (to be used with a stationary bike to charge phones and laptops)
  • A car or marine battery
  • A metal bathtub (for taking baths!)
  • Tobacco
  • Tarps
  • Volunteers
  • A truck to drive around for a day

"Come for the work, stay for the party!"

Protests like this are working to draw attention to the disaster at Bear Mountain. I see that more and more municipalities are now waking up and putting the brakes on the monstrous plans of the developers of Bear Mountain and their politican collaborators at Langford and Highlands Council. I see that almost all municipal reps on the CRD Water Committee except for Colwood, Highlands and Langford are now going to oppose the expansion of the urban containment boundary (and water works) which would mainly have had the purpose of fueling the next atrocious phase of BARE mountain as they start stripping the next mountain, Skirt Mountain. Time to stop this nonsense!
