Co-op Day in Victoria a big success

  26 February 2013

CHF BC members came from the Island and Mainland to attend the first Co-op Day in Victoria on Saturday, February 23. The event was organized by the Victoria Community Health Co-operative and featured key-note speaker Ian MacPherson, professor emeritus from the University of Victoria, who gave a talk and presentation entitled “Peace, co-operation and sustainability.”A wide range of co-ops were represented from credit unions and retail co-ops, to artist co-ops and farming co-ops, and the day was a great opportunity for CHF BC to build connections within the wider co-operative community.Photo: CHF BC’s president, Isabel Evans (right), presents a door prize to a Co-op Day attendee.
