Join BC Green MLA Adam Olsen and Green Party of Canada leader Elizabeth May to a Green Picnic in the Vines, hosted by the Saanich North and the Islands Riding Association.
We are honoured to be collaborating with our federal cousins on this upcoming social event. Bring your picnic dinner, enjoy fresh air, a beautiful setting, musical entertainment and kids activities, wear your favourite green item, and hear stories from Adam and Elizabeth.
If you would like to make a day of it, consider popping by the Salt Spring Island Market along the way!
There are transportation options available on Salt Spring Island should you wish to leave your vehicle behind. There is a great bus service and we are working with the Salt Spring Island EV Car Club to provide additional options. Please RSVP to receive further details.
This event is free to attend, but we welcome donations of $20 to help cover the costs.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
