Richmond Councillor Harold Steves, who was instrumental in the formation of the Agricultural Land Reserve as an NDP MLA in 1972, will be guest speaker at the final Green Wednesday event at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Langlay campus, on Wednesday, April 9.

The movie “GMO OMG” will also be shown. The event runs from 7:15 to 10 p.m. at the Langley campus.

The event is free, but because of limited seating, an RSVP is necessary. This can be done by calling 604-599-3348 or e-mailing Betty.Cunnin@kpu.ca.

Steves runs an 11-acre farm on the original Steves homestead in Steveston and is an ardent defendcer of the ALR. He also serves as vice-chairt of Metro Vancouver’s planning and agriculture  committee.
