LOCATION

The gathering takes places in front of the great Salish Sea iron sculpture by Salish artist Chris Paul.

The Salish Sea Iron Sculpture

This location is part of the site of the ancient seaport of Sitchanalth.

It was also the location of Sealand where humans first realized that keeping ORCAs in captivity was inconsistent with the emerging human spirit.

 

BRING LOLITA HOME

As the World Spotlight is on Canada we are happy to do our little bit to also share this attention with “Tokitae/Lolita” and the “Bring Lolita Home” movement who are campaigning this month to bring Lolita home to Friday Harbour from a pen in Miami.

We will be delighted to have a local activist Diane McNally who has been working diligently to “Bring Lolita Home” :  She writes :

I’m in Victoria by the Cook St Village 🙂

I’ve been sending letters for 8 years to the Miami Seaquarium, about 120 each year and getting signatures on letters  and mailing them myself to the MSQ / Parques Reunidos etc.

This June was my 2nd year at Fernfest with info and letters.

I had a display at the central Library all month, and did an orca hat for kids event there.

This was my second year petitioning Victoria City council to proclaim Orca Month in the City of Victoria. Success x2 🙂

I’ve been published in the TC quite a few times re orcas over the years, last on “Stalking Orcas” re give it up with the whale watching, in a few days ago in Comment.

Another TC Comment from 2010: https://lolitatokitae.com/2010/10/20/orca-baby-born-at-sea-world-these-little-slaves-are-so-cute/

Looking forward to the event!

2017-6-11 : Building a Sustainable Future

Dr Brian O’Leary passed away July 28th, 2011. A former NASA astronaut and PhD recipient from the University of California at Berkeley (1967), Dr. O’Leary was known for his research and advocacy into alternative energy (free energy).

Originally trained as a conventional scientist, Brian O’Leary’s investigation of the universe opened his eyes to many advanced theories that aren’t yet recognized by conventional scientists (who remain far behind the curve on “over-unity energy research” – aka Cold Fusion or Zero Point Energy).

Most of this technology is classified as “Secret” and has been since Tesla’s great discoveries and his death.

O’Leary eventually bucked the system, left the stifling world of academia and set out on his own to explore alternative science and free energy research.

We believe that Zero Point Energy and Cold Fusion will play a game changing role in the needless battles underway in places like British Columbia.

2015-6-1 : Oak Bay Square – A Vision for the future of the Oak Bay Village

This post provides a link to an innovative project which envisions Oak Bay Square – a proposed new European style square at the heart of Oak Bay.

Oak Bay Municipality is at the heart of the Salish Sea World Heritage Site Proposal in 2017.

The square acts as a new focal point for the Oak Bay Municipality and its many “round the year” events: the Christmas Lights; the Night Market; The Summer Walk of the Arts etc.
