Updates on the Cause

UPDATE - July 20, 2023

Hey Kelowna! We did a great job in preserving Kelowna Springs Greenspace at the June 20 City Council hearing, but it appears that the fight to save these valuable wetlands is not over yet.

Please be on the lookout for a new petition in the next few weeks as we continue our battle to save Kelowna’s green spaces and wetlands, and to protect Kelowna from the big city industrialization that threatens to ruin our culture, our values and our quality of life.

UPDATE - June 21, 2023


YOU did it. YOU made a difference.

Thank you to all who sent letters, signed the petition, and attended the Council meeting on June 20. City Council has changed the Kelowna Springs Greenspace from Industrial back to P3 Parks and Open Space.

To quote Councilor Luke Stack:

"Do it for the citizens who have asked you to do it, do it for the trees, maybe you want to do it to preserve green space, maybe you want to do it to protect the neighbouring wetland and the animal and bird species that enjoy this area, maybe you want to do it to protect the surrounding farmlands, perhaps you want to do it to protect the flood plain, maybe you want to even do it to help offset climate change.


"I don't know, but do it mostly for our city's future."
