When Premier Eby announced his “100 day plan” he committed to accelerate implementation of the old growth recommendations as one of his top priorities after being sworn in. This wouldn’t have happened without the people-power led movement that has grown over the past two years to protect these ancient forests and honour Indigenous rights.
And now over 160 organizations have signed onto a cross-sectoral declaration – United We Stand for Old-Growth Forests – to call on the BC government to follow through on its old growth commitments.
So now’s the time to put pressure on Eby to fulfill his personal promise to accelerate action on old growth in his first 100 days of office, which is February 25, 2023. In partnership, we are planning a mass mobilization to hold the province accountable, with a march and rally scheduled on that same day. We need to remind Eby just how many people are in support of old growth protection at the scale and urgency required.
