Who's looking after your Water?
Destructive Agriculture & Your WATER:
On Thursday February 26th, the SENS presentation will confirm why it's crucial for
communities to look after their water and have a say about the agriculture we allow
in our community.*
Even farms that are under the 'Environmental Farm Plan' can cause severe long term
water pollution - Come hear what has happened to a whole community in Spallumcheen
due to a factory dairy, and find out if, and how, citizens can protect their own

On the GMO Front:
US approve GM non-browning apple
Although not approved in Canada, this apple is engineered by 'Okanagan Specialty
Fruits'. If approved by Canadian regulators, this would be the second GM fruit on
the market anywhere in the world, after a US-grown papaya, and it would be the first
GM fruit grown in Canada.
Approvals of genetically engineered trees
just over our border could put Canada's forest ecosystems at risk. The loblolly
pine is grown in the US southeast but what forest trees could the US government
approve next? PS: Despite warnings from scientists, Canada continues to permit
field tests of transgenic forest trees.
Glyphosate worst threat than GM crops
According to Tony Mitra, Glyphosate is a greater health risk, proven, than GMO.
Glyphosate combined with vaccine additives make a drastically more dangerous
cocktail of poison. Glyphosate is in more things than just our food, and is killing
more than just humans. Glyphosate is now being used even on non-GMO crops as
desiccant, so it is expected to have higher concentration on non-GMO food than even
on GMO crops. Lastly, without Glyphosate, a majority of the GMO (roundUp ready
crops) will automatically die off. IN other words, eradicating GMO will not stop
Glyphosate, but eradicating Glyphosate will more or less kill the largest swatch of
GMO. So, at least in my view, Glyphosate is to be the primary target of my energy.
The only thing worse is, 2,4-D is coming, together with Glyphosate and smart stacks.
'Dr. Vrain agrees: ' “The problem may not be GMO's, but rather the RoundUp that
comes with it”

WOOHOO, Lumby goes GMO-Free!
Rural Lumby votes to be GMO FREE!
On April 15th, Area D of RDNO has overwhelmingly said NO to Genetically Modified Crops, joining Cherryville and the more than 60 other BC communities who have supported a resolution in favour of banning GMO crops. In all, 405 votes were cast, 293 from area D, 53 from Lumby and the rest from neighbouring communities. Area D voted 92.8% in favour of a ban! Thank you to everyone who supported this campaign with your good words and letters. Your courage in speaking out for a better future is appreciated.
Stay tuned for the next steps in this process.
51 more BC Communities become GMO FREE!
On Sunday, 51 municipalities supported a motion to make Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities a GMO FREE zone – from Victoria to Comox to Campbell River to the Sunshine Coast and to Ucluelet
Good news Gordon's is open.
After the sad loss of our friend Gordon the store has reopened with his daughter behind the counter.. A movie about the store.
Bring the bus to Grindrod.
Although taxi service should be available. Affordable transit is also needed. Many seniors will not be able to afford taxi service. The bus is affordable by all income groups. Even one or two days a week could allow Grindrondians the ability to access services in Vernon and or Salmon Arm. At rates of $2.50 a direction or less.
Public transit is a environmental and economical friendly way to provide transportation services to our communities.
With the goal of making our great attraction. We have see questionnaires handed out to patrons asking their input on the current menu. Changes they would like to see.
We hope this will lead to a quality menu showcasing the quality we have here in Grindrod. With a focus on local products on the menu we will share with the world the greatness of our community. Looking forward to the announcement.
Would support Local specials at River Front?
As a community we would supply the kitchen with the things we produce. Eggs, vegetable, meats, grain, honey, herbs etc. They will turn them into a gourmet delight. We all will enjoy the bounty our community has to offer and share it with our labours.
