As Juan de Fuca regional residents we share this in common:
We are gravely troubled by the staggering rate and volume of deforestation in our region. We believe that our forests are being grossly mismanaged, and that these lands which should represent our commons have been unjustly expropriated in the name of fast profit for industry shareholders, at the expense of ecological sustainability and what is literally the birthright ground for future generations.
Our vision is two-fold:
Canadian Blood Services is a not-for-profit charitable organization that manages the blood supply in all provinces and territories outside of Quebec. Annually, Canadian Blood Services collects over 900,000 whole blood donations and delivers products to more than 700 hospital customers with every donation going on to save lives. We currently have one permanent site located in Victoria and various mobile clinics located throughout the Greater Victoria Area including one every 56 days in Sooke.
The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
