BCMC withdraws from the FMCBC
 51.92 KB

The BCMC has had a great run in the FMCBC since its inception in 1972. We regret to inform you that we have decided to discontinue our membership effective immediately. Due to increased population pressures in the province, an increasingly large number of access issues are not being resolved, particularly in the lower mainland. We require a stronger, harder hitting advocacy program to resolve these issues than the FMCBC is prepared to provide. We have decided to embark on a grassroots program open to all residents of the province with lead volunteers assigned to as many issues possible with the responsibility of promoting non-motorized advocacy for their particular issue. This will be facilitated via http://backcountrybc.ca, a specialized platform set up specifically for this purpose.
