Let's Swarm the Legislature!

The bees need your help!

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.
