Save the ALR (Agricultural Land Reserve) Rally – Victoria, BC

ALR Rally 01

The sun came out and shone on a large crowd gathered on the lawns of the legislative buildings today at the Food for the Future Rally. Many thanks are due to the organizers, the sterling lineup of speakers, and even more importantly, the families and individuals who showed up to make it known that there are plenty of citizens who do not support the government’s move to dismantle the ALR. We are fortunate here in BC to have landmark legislation in place to protect farmland from development. Here’s hoping the powers that be take note and respect the wishes of those who are determined to protect what little farmland we have left.

  1. Great photos. Wasn’t it amazing how the sunny period was so perfectly timed as to align with the rally? It just poured minutes after it was over. I loved Janet Roger’s poem, and my very politically minded husband gleefully chanted “no frackin’ way” all the way home in the car later. It’ll be interesting to hear if this topic is referenced in any way today in the legislature.

  2. I am totally with you. We are so stupid in the way we manage our land and water resources and we WILL regret it. Because once we lose it, it’s gone and isn’t coming back. Stupid stupid stupid.
