Transition may someday reach Critical Mass in BC, a new social, political, and green movement that generates results, not a lot of hot air....and carbon.  It all is down to its grassroots origins, the level where the only real and lasting things have ever happened.  

My only frustration is that we cannot get organized fast enough.  If you want a real wake-up call about prospects for containing, let alone slowing, global climate change, watch and listen to Bill McKibben's recent remarks at UBC here.

That said, everything in permaculture takes time.  Consider the years or decades it will take just to rebuild the soil around my house (any house) to create a viable food garden.  100 years of lawn clippings, leaves, and deadfall were carted away.  Pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and lead paint chips were its only inputs.  It is no wonder nothing grew at first, or at least nothing edible.

I just joined your mailing list at Transition Comox Valley.  I like your resources, and you might consider adding Bill McKibben's voice.  Let's build a powerful movement across BC and enjoy each other's company in the process.

Dan,

We hope you know Michael Linton and use Community Way Dollars because we are trying to launch a local currency here as well.  Michael has made many trips to Vancouver to teach us how to do it.  

To our knowledge Courtney-Comox does not have a Transition initiative going yet, but I am sure there are many people there with the interest.  

Thanks for joining, and I hope you can learn a few things and get inspired.

Randy
