    Together we, the people of BC, can stop this unnecessary destruction.

Public hearings are being held regarding the application to remove land from Pinecone Burke Provincial Park for a transmission line related to this private power project. These hearings are a pivotal opportunity to intercept the destruction and theft of our public resources.

Get on the bus!

On Feb. 28, the Wilderness Committee will be providing a bus to the public hearing in Pitt Meadows. Bus riders will be provided a sandwich, so please RSVP as soon as you can so we know how many to bring.
