Meeting tonight in Sandspit

  • Apr. 4, 2005 6:00 p.m.

There will be a community meeting tonight (April 4) in Sandspit to talk about the two-week-old protest taking place on Graham Island against Weyerhaeuser and the provincial government.
“Sandspit needs to do something to support our neighbours,” said resident Bill Beldessi. “It’s all about sustainability.”
Mr. Beldessi said there has been some talk in Sandspit over the past week about the situation, and he is hoping that people will come up with a vision statement and ideas about how to join the action.
“We’ll be with everybody else instead of on the outside,” he said.
Protesters have been blocking two logging roads outside Port Clements and Queen Charlotte since March 22, halting most logging activity in Weyerhaeuser’s TFL and barring Ministry of Forests employees from their office in Queen Charlotte.
The meeting is at the Sandspit community hall starting at 7 pm.
