The “Knot On My Property” program is up and running for 2018

Local governments in the Comox Valley (the Town of Comox, the City of Courtenay, the Village of Cumberland, and the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD)) have once again joined forces with the Coastal Invasive Species Committee (Coastal ISC) to bust invasive Knotweed and Giant Hogweed. Both plants are considered alien invasive species in BC and if left unchecked can wreak havoc on our local ecosystems and diminish property values. And in the case of giant hogweed, can lead to third degree burns when in contact with skin, due to its clear phototoxic sap.

Watergate at the Comox Valley

Dear Comox Valley Resident: Hopefully, after reading this you will reconsider your support to the Comox Valley Water Treatment Project. Why are we fighting a problem that doesn’t exist? The Comox Valley Regional District has failed to demonstrate that a new Comox Valley Water Treatment is needed. We need to work as a community to oppose the CVRD project to filter 147 million liters of water per day from the Comox Lake unnecessarily.

CLIMATE CHANGE CHRONICLE 40: The Transition to Community Climate Change Cultures

In the previous two chronicles I have used the analogy of the chrysalis experience to describe the need for transitions in dealing with a climate changing world. Chronicle 38 introduced the three life stages of the chrysalis: the caterpillar cocoon stage, the imaginal cell stage, and the new butterfly stage. The major focus was on the cocoon that I described as a colonial cocoon protecting the economic and sometimes political systems designed to gorge themselves on Earth’s resources.
