Emberly, a well known Maple Ridge educator and conservationist, spent three days at the Vancouver Island blockade, where activists engaged in civil disobedience to halt the logging of an old grown forest. He created the video, and posted it to Youtube in October of 2021.

There were numerous complaints to the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission about the RCMP’s conduct at the blockade.

Call 604-463-2229 to register, and the first 25 people calling can attend for free.

The blockade is now entering its third year.
