May Issue focuses on Mothers Day

May entered with a blast of heat that melted snow and threatens flooding in many regions of B.C. as well, I am sure in other parts of the Northern world.
May also brings Mothers Day celebrations. For the peace movement it is a day begun in 1870 as a walk for peace by women.
This issue of the BPI Newsletter focuses on the true meaning of this day with the 40th year of the Kootenay/Boundary/Okanagan of B.C and Washington State Mothers Day Walk for Peace. We invite you to join us to build community in a loving and peaceful gathering to honour Mother Earth and call for peace, socioeconomic justice and environmental sustainability as one global family.
Go to the BPI website for all the information you will need to join us at

Spring has arrived and with it unsettled weather but it is getting warmer making it easier to hang out outside.
