Conserving the Natural Environment of the Saanich Peninsula: Two Perspectives
Bob Peart Coordinator, Saanich Peninsula Environmental Coalition
Ian Bruce Executive Director, Peninsula Streams Society
The Saanich Peninsula Environmental Coalition is developing a bioregional framework, to be adopted by Central Saanich, North Saanich and Sidney, that outlines a set common principles to facilitate ecologically sustainable practices on the Saanich Peninsula.
The Peninsula Streams Society helps coordinate stream restoration and habitat conservation on the Saanich Peninsula. On April 20, at 7 p.m., Peart and Bruce will discuss the threats we face and the work that must be done to mitigate them.
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.
