Walk for the Salish Sea – May 2017

The  Environment Committee is made up of a diverse group of people with many different interests that intersect in different ways.  Currently, many of us are organizers, peace marshals, or participants in the marches and rallies against pipelines, tankers, and climate change. As well, we organize film screenings, educational events, and fundraising dinners in support of various social justice, First Nations, and environmental groups. (see bottom of page for photos of some events)

We meet once a month to share information and coordinate actions. You are welcome to drop in and get a feel for the way the meetings are run and what topics are being addressed. If you have an item that you would like raised at a meeting, please contact Tamiko Suzuki.

Fundraising lunches


If you like cooking and hanging out in the kitchen, we’d love to meet you! We put on several organic, vegan / vegetarian lunches a year for our Green Fund. By serving these meals, we want to show that eating low on the food chain is not only good for the planet, but do-able and delicious! Working together in the kitchen is also a great way to get to know people on the committee and get the scoop on the latest issues!
