The Opposition Standing Committee for Agriculture and Food will be in Courtenay next week to hear presentations on issues affecting agriculture, aquaculture and food on Vancouver Island.
The Opposition Committee was established in response to concerns with the B.C. government’s approach in the creation of its agriculture and food policies. The committee is made up of five Opposition MLAs and one independent. It is the first committee of its kind in British Columbia.
The committee is holding a public meeting in Courtney on Friday, May 15, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., at the North Island College’s Courtenay Campus: 2300 Ryan Rd, Tyee Hall, Rm 205. To participate in the meeting, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-479-4154 to arrange a time.
Presentations should be approximately 10 minutes in length.
