Video: The movement to save old-growth rainforests

Monday, December 07, 2020

While our communities work together to get through the COVID-19 pandemic, this is also a key moment for endangered and irreplaceable old-growth rainforests in BC. The movement for old-growth forests forced the BC government to review its broken policies last year, resulting in a comprehensive report with some solid recommendations. During the election campaign, Premier John Horgan went further, promising to implement all fourteen recommendations from the report and protect old-growth. Now it’s up to us to hold his government accountable to these promises. The government has lot’s of priorities as we work to rebuild through this pandemic, and with your help, we can make sure immediate action to protect old-growth is one of them. Each action you take is part of a series of strategic and coordinated actions targeting government decision-makers all across the province. From emails and phone calls to other tactics that can be undertaken during this period of social distancing, together we’ll make protecting old-growth forests an issue the BC government can’t ignore.
