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.
