The Comox Valley Echo notes, “The Council of Canadians is taking a night off from its usual serious work on social and political issues and is having a potluck supper on Thursday, December 15 at 6 P.M. at Creekside Commons. The CoC Chapter will provide the turkey and the rest will be supplied by members and friends. There will be some surprise music and entertainment.”
“The Chapter’s annual Community Action Award will (also) be presented at this supper to the Comox Valley Water Watch. The CoC values the work that that organization has done in order to protect our aquifers, having a visual display which has educated our Valley, and their work in starting Coal Watch, among other things.”
As noted by the newspaper this time last year, “’Each year, our chapter of the Council of Canadians presents a Community Action Award to a local group that has contributed significantly to the Comox Valley community,’ says former CoC chair Gwyn Frayne. ‘For the 2010 award, we have selected CoalWatch. The Council of Canadians is very committed to protecting our water and environment; we believe the Raven Coal mine threatens both.’”
