Thank you to everyone who has supported the forest in so many ways at Basil Creek this past week. The festive theme set a peaceful, respectful, and merry tone for all who joined or passed by the blockade.
Media coverage continued on Friday as CTV arrived at the site and interviewed several individuals. The story was aired on CTV News at 5pm.
The first stage of blockading has been successful. Cortes Island now has an opportunity to move forward positively. Island Timberlands have stated that they will not pursue an injunction for one week, and they are willing to meet in that time to discuss concerns that Cortes Islanders have.
The tent, table, food and wood were taken down Friday night to prevent vandalism. All of this will be stored, and ready for setting up again, depending on how things unfold in the next week.
Thank you all!!!!
