On June 4, SGI-Canada members and friends took part in Vancouver's annual "Keep Vancouver Spectacular" campaign. The volunteers picked up garbage and cigarette butts in Victoria Park. One volunteer commented that as she was picking up butts some smokers commented that they would try to stop throwing their cigarettes on the ground. Another volunteer shared how he was encouraged to see how their efforts inspired others in the community to take action to keep the environment clean.
