On June 27, 2011 Jeremy Mcall, Executive Director for the Outdoor Recreation Council of BC e-mailed a letter to the Hon. Terry Lake, Minister of Environment, enclosing the Resolution ORC passed at their AGM in June on the subject of re-introducing a program for volunteers to work in BC Parks.

ORC also decided at their AGM to ask any club which has experienced difficulties in this area of arranging for volunteers to work in BC Parks to write the Minister to describe their experiences and support ORC’s Resolution. McCall’s hope is to get some traction on this issue during this BC Parks Centenary year.

Please also note that in the letter ORC has offered to assist BC Parks with getting the volunteer program operating again as they want to emphasize the constructive aspects of this campaign.
