Just say "No" to War every Wednesday at noon with the Wednesday Peace Vigil.  We are opposed to the idea that war solves anything.  We know that war kills kids.  Please come take a stand with us for any part of the hour at the Cenotaph at the Legislature some Wednesday soon (Belleville & Government).  Meeting weekly since October 2001 when Canadian forces joined in support of the "humanitarian bombing" of Afghanistan.   (Note:  We no longer meet at 7:00 pm.)  Jane Brett <

This link will find you all the info you need for Earth Hour (an expression of concern for our environment). There is lots of time for a municipal outreach to get all of our local governments to join in. I am sending this to the Central Saanich Energy Committee, the Coalition of Coalitions, BCGEU Cool Communities, 3 of my local Councillors and anyone else I can think of.

The Certified Organic Associations of British Columbia (COABC) is holding its annual conference at the Mary Winspear Centre at Sanscha, in Sidney, February 29 - March 2. The conference workshops and social activities are open to the public.
An exciting addition to the festivities is a family friendly dance with the farmers! The dance will be held Friday, Feb. 29 from 8-10:30. The conference banquet will be a Sustainable Feast-style dinner on March 1 and will be open to the public. Tickets for the banquet are $30/person. The Revolutionary Farmers Coffee House will follow the banquet and is included in the banquet ticket price.
The conference program includes the screening of two films on March 1, Gardens of Destiny and Tableland. Tickets for each of the films are available for $8/adult; $5/student and will be available at the door.
This is a great opportunity to meet many of BC's organic producers and to learn about what's going on in the organic industry. Please see

Where can you get your fix of tasty, hearty and healthy organic produce? At the Pocket Markets, of course!!!
