In Memory of Cam Gillespie (1976 - 2009)
An avid hiker and advocate of green living, loved and missed by many.
A donation to the Wilderness Committee has been made in Cam's memory by June Thompson.
The St’at’imc and ‘Tsilcot’in Nations have invited the Wilderness Committee to blaze new and repair old trails leading into a sacred valley in the heart of the Chilcotin Mountains north of the gold mining town, Gold Bridge. The sacred valley is called Graveyard, and it is the site of the last battle that occurred between the rival First Nations some 200 years ago.
Giving away our provincial park for a private corporation’s profit
On August 12, the Manitoba government took the shocking step of authorizing the Dickstone South Road, a LOGGING ROAD that will cut Grass River Provincial Park in half! After spending 8 months trumpeting their legislation to finally end park logging in Grass River Provincial Park and three other parks, this decision to allow the logging road is unethical, against the spirit of the Park Logging ban, and against the wishes of the majority of Manitobans.

The Seton Community Farm is an aboriginal farm and food security project launched in partnership by the Seton Lake Indian Band and the Wilderness Community in 2005 in an attempt to get more First Nation youth healthy and involved in wilderness protection projects. It began as an offshoot of our project with Toxic Free Canada to help the Seton Lake Band become the first toxic free Indian reserve in Canada!
