Vancouver Island Viewpoint

We have arrived at this extraordinary human evolutionary point in time by doing what we've done. We cannot continue doing what we have done before because it will bring our very existence to an end. It is a human dilemma.

What we will do based on history and experience will be our undoing. An active transformational engagement of change is all that might save us.

Defining terms:
