As a post script to the Canada 150 “Oak Bay Sings O CANADA” event it is worth noting that Hilary Coupland, the Choir Master, in greeting Syrian Violinist Sari Alesh, concluded her welcome with the very first public declaration of the Salish Sea Bioregional Marine Sanctuary Vision :

“Today on July 1, 2017, Canada’s 50th Birthday, we the people of Oak Bay Canada, gathered here today on the land of the L’kwungen, at the Oak Bay Marina (aka Spewhung Point) promise to work diligently to Restore Natural Animal Populations throughout the Salish Sea Bioregion to more than 50% of historic levels as soon as possible”

Surely this is one of the major goals for Canada as we begin the next fifty years.
