The central core of downtown Victoria was a hive of pedestrian activity as Douglas Street was closed on Sunday, June 19th to make way for musicians, food vendors, artists and businesses and organizations of every description for the second annual Car Free Day.
The festive atmosphere resulted in a broad cross-section of the community visiting the BCSEA tent and keeping us all busy.
Victoria Chapter steering committee team members worked non-stop and gathered more than 250 signatures for the BCSEA 100% Renewable Energy petition, our second highest number of signatures since our attendance at the Creatively United for the Planet Earth Week Festival in April.
We have since surpassed this with more than 500 signatures collected this past July 1st during Canada Day celebrations on the Gorge waterway.
