The SCCA has filed a "Request for Review " with the BC Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (OIPC) on September 2, 2009. This request relates to the Sechelt Community Forest's response to our Freedom of Information request of June 9, 2009 .

The SCCA felt that critical information was wrongfully withheld  by Sechelt Community Forest . This review is now underway.

We would like to thank all the businesses and donors for supporting the 2009 Celebration of Conservation held on October 17, 2009 at the Sechelt Seniors Activity Centre. If we have missed anyone we apologize in advance.
