Last year more than 90% of the honey-bees on the island died!
And what is worse, the provincial government's response has been to weaken the protections for our precious island bees.
Bee-keepers from across Vancouver Island ask you to join them for a rally:
Wednesday September 22nd at noon at the BC Legislature.
We are calling on the government to consult with island bee-keepers and strengthen the regulations.
This is about more than honey. Bees are critical pollinators, and without pollinators more than a third of our food plants will die.
We are asking everyone who supports local farming and food security to join us.
