Byrne Creek Streamkeepers had our booth set up at the Alta Vista Community Picnic in south Burnaby, BC, today.
This is one of our favourite events because it’s in our neighborhood, and it’s a great family and friends affair.
We also got several people interested in volunteering with our group!

I think governments at all levels, municipal, regional, provincial, and federal, should stop doing studies, stop doing consultations, and go back into their files for the last 10 years and look at everything that has been consulted and planned, but never implemented.
Talk – action = Zero
I say 10 years, because if you went back 20 or 30 or 40, the lack of implementation would be even more depressingly overwhelming.
Think I’m kidding?
I’m one citizen. A fairy active one, and I have a full four-drawer filing cabinet full of stuff on government processes that I’ve been asked to contribute to over the many years. And not a dime of compensation, just my tax dollars frittered away, again, and again, and again.
Not much joy out of those thousands of hours….
And on the other hand, what’s with governments moving forward with environmentally and culturally horrendous projects like the Site C dam?
Took my lunch down to Fraser Foreshore Park in south Burnaby, BC, and spotted a couple of downy woodpeckers and a northern flicker while I was munching away. Canon SX730HS pocket cam at max zoom.
I love driving the Pemberton Meadows Road, such great views!
Took a jaunt while camping at Alice Lake Provincial Park.
