A member of the Kelowna-based Marijuana Party is hoping to drum up support for the volunteer-run Search and Rescue Society of British Columbia.
The B.C. Marijuana Party is led by cannabis-advocate Marc Emery.
Search and rescue operations were not included in the 2019 B.C. budget, leaving the provincial organization scrambling as funding runs out in March, a move Jones called “unacceptable.”
“This is something that’s very important, regardless of whether it’s a political issue or social issue,” he said. Jones has now launched a Facebook fundraiser.
