Summer BBQ on July 8 — a little different this time!

This year, COPE has decided to change up our signature annual event, due to concerns around the availability and
sustainability of the traditional main course: salmon. Instead, we will
enjoy a “100-mile diet” dinner and have a dialogue around food security/sovereignty.

As usual, we will enjoy the beautiful view at the Vancouver
Rowing Club. We’ll also have some great music from Geoff Berner ( and Rhythm Nation (

WHERE: Vancouver Rowing Club (450 Stanley Park Drive)

WHEN: Wednesday, July 8, 6:30-10:30pm

WHY: Great food, great music and great conversation.

Tickets are $60 and can be purchased by credit card or cheque by calling
Rachel at 604-312-9057.



We also wanted to send out a quick note to apologize to  for our newsletter glitch last week. The server literally went down as we clicked “send” which meant that some of you received the email many, many times. We’re confident the issue has been resolved and would like to thank you for your patience. Our apologies for any hassle this may have caused. Thanks for your continued support and interest in the work that COPE does.


COPE has moved and we’re having a little open house!
