Noted environmental activist David Suzuki is scheduled to stop in the Harbour City June 1 as part of his Celebrating Coastal Connections tour.
According to a press release, the tour will draw on Suzuki and the David Suzuki Foundation’s long-term efforts and relationship with B.C.’s coastal communities. Shellfish mortality and low snow pack are some of the reasons cited for the need for faster response to environmental challenges.
“We’re hoping to celebrate, motivate and connect coastal communities, First Nations and partners around our shared respect and admiration for the coastal waters that make British Columbia such an amazing place to live,” said Jay Ritchlin, David Suzuki Foundation Western Canada director. “We want to hear about the challenges facing our coastal communities, successes in overcoming those challenges and visions for a healthy future.”
The event takes place at the auditorium at Beban Park, beginning at 7 p.m.
