The Bulkley Valley Research Centre in collaboration with Driftwood Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation wrote a document based on a one-day workshop exploring the potential for future collaboration in the Skeena watershed on issues related to habitat management. Be sure you check out the link to the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation as it speaks volumes about their connection to our Bulkley Valley Eco-activist groups. The the facilitator for the event, Julian Griggs of Dovetail Consulting Inc. who comes with the following testimonial ” “Julian is simply the best facilitator I’ve used. He is not only able to work with a team to craft excellent strategies and help organizations become truly effective, but you all have fun while you’re doing it!” said David L. Secord, Ph.D. Vice President, Strategic Grantmaking, The American Tides Foundation,.
Quote: “Don Morgan also highlighted the role played by the Bulkley Valley Research Centre, in filling a gap in service delivery for government, particularly in the areas of research.”
They feel their role is to align governments information to match the objectives of this Eco-radical organization.

From their website, here is what they want you to believe. “Vision – The Centre is a trusted source of credible research, information, and expertise pertaining to natural and cultural resources, and provides a forum for people and institutions to work together to sustain these resources.”
From their Community development initiatives. Note that money does not grow on trees, as they say “If you dance with the devil, then you haven’t got a clue, for you think you’ll change the devil, but the devil changes you.” This money comes from Americans with an agenda, you must adhere to that agenda. Another quote to remember “The road to hell is paved with good intentions” As a former member of some of these organizations I have seen first hand how you become obligated to the hand that feeds you, the good news is I WOKE and as much as I love our environment, I won’t sell out to American pressure.
Take the time to read, some have good ideas, some are 100% the concepts of people who live from hundreds of miles away to thousands of miles away, planning OUR valley’s futures, not in your face but behind your backs.
