About a hundred people turned up at the Regional District of the North Okanagan meeting on the 16th January to support a GE Free zone resolution. Several hundred more wrote letters of support. A presentation was made by BeeSafe which was welcomed by local politicians.
You can see the presentation at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gj9063uh4mc&feature=youtu.be including the presentation and questions by Councillors.
Let’s not underestimate the potential for local people to make a difference.
