Chilliwack River Valley, British Columbia

David Lamson is an activist who wants the best for his community, specifically involving the river and fish habitat.

He helped bridge the gap by forming the Chilliwack River Action Committee, which enabled the concerned community groups to work together. Through his resourcefulness, inclusiveness, integrity and plain dogged persistence, David encourages his community to find common goals towards a happier, healthier and safer place to live, work and enjoy recreationally.
