Celebrating Our Bute, Nov 14


Saturday November 14, 7:30 pm
Quadra Community Centre

Join us to appreciate the wild beauty of Bute Inlet! Learn about the place and its history, and find out what’s going on there now.

This multi-media evening will feature slides and video footage from the 2009 Bute summer boat tours; presentations about the ecology of Bute and its resident population of grizzly bears; as well as a short history of the inlet by local author Jeannette Taylor.

The “what’s happening now” portion of the evening includes Gwen Barlee’s (Wilderness Committee) explanation of Plutonic & GE’s river diversion proposal and where we are in the Environmental Assessment process. We’ll look at Philip Stone’s recent aerial photos of Plutonic’s Toba projects to get an idea of what could happen at Bute. Arthur Caldicott’s talk tackles the ideological differences around “green energy” in BC, and Friends of Bute Inlet unveils plans for community action.

A highlight of the evening will be a slide show of the pictures submitted to the Bute Inlet Photo Contest. The evening will wrap up with the announcement of the winning photographers.

Come on out. Show you care – and lets make sure WE are included in deciding the fate of Bute!

Doors open at 7 pm and refreshments will be served.
