A cross-boarder meeting for " The Emerging Cascadia Innovation Corridor Conference" was launched in Vancouver, British Columbia over the weekend of September 19th-21st. The conference brought together government and business leaders to explore the potential for partnerships in education, transportation, university research in a new example of cross-border collaboration.
A poem by CascadiaNow! Ambassador Wally du Temple inspired by the interviews by Earl K. Pollon and S. S. Matheson conducted with native Sekanni peoples who were negatively effected by the flooding of their communal homelands by the building of the W.A.C. Bennett Dam in BC, where another dam down stream, The Site ‘C’ Dam, is now being planned.
Several folks came in from around South-West British Columbia for the first ever Vancouver BC meetup that took place in Richmond earlier this month. Right now is a great time to be involved, and BC seems to have a great group of folks helping make Cascadia a reality, including in Victoria, Vancouver BC, Richmond, a Kwantlen Polytechnic Chapter, and a South of the Frasier Valley group.
Heading for Cascadia Poetry Festival, happening May 1-4 in Seattle? Join a bunch of us on the Poets Cruise aboard the Victoria Clipper passenger ferry, departing downtown Victoria on Wednesday, April 30, at 6:00 pm. We will arrive in downtown Seattle at 8:45 pm.
The project marks a leap forward into the forefront of timber engineering, an area in which Europe has traditionally led. These advancements in sustainable design make a great contribution to raising worldwide awareness of the Cascadian region.
