…a throwback to 2011 when I first visited “The Great Bear Rainforest.” My love and support always to “The Gitga’at Nation” and any efforts that help to protect your territory. We beat Enbridge and Northern Gateway and we will protect the rest of the coast too!
Please watch, like and share! Again, I’m honored to continue to support Sadie Parr and the work being done by Wolf Awareness Inc. My friend and Filmmaker Paul Novy from Iceberg Films did an exceptional job capturing the presentation on January 27th.

Thankfully, on December 18th the BC NDP Government became one and ended this atrocious trophy hunting fiasco once and for all. I do not necessarily support any one given political party but I certainly do support this legislation and I applaud those elected to office for making a humane decision. This is certainly cause to celebrate this… Read More

More traditional song, dance and dress was provided before opening remarks were made… Read More
