West Coast Environmental Law has awarded us their EDRF grant! YEAH! Our lawyer has begun working on our case and will provide updates when I receive them.
With the grant and current donations from the Go Fund Me page, we are still short $1200 for the work budget. As per the grant requirements, I needed to sign off and am held accountable for the shortfall. I realize these are tough times however, if you have a little wiggle room every dollar donated counts. If you can spare $5, I’d be forever grateful!
May 1 The April bulletin from the Southern Vancouver Island Anglers Coalition, with an update and discussion on Fraser River chinook, the Big Bar landslide, and the halibut season.
