Please sign the petition to save the Third Floor of the Royal BC Museum, which is under attack by the NDP government and related political forces more interested in hiding and eliminating history than in preserving it. The Third Floor, which for many constitutes the core of the museum, is scheduled to close on January 2nd and whole sections are planned to be removed and eliminated. The petition is located here: https://www.change.org/p/save-the-third-floor-of-the-royal-bc-museum The planned closure has been announced in the Times Colonist: https://www.timescolonist.com/local-news/rbcm-closing-3rd-floor-for-adecolonizationa-effort-that-will-remove-old-town-settler-displays-ship-4719972 The following is an excellent riposte written by an indigenous writer: https://www.timescolonist.com/opinion/comment-nobody-wants-museums-discovery-or-old-town-gone-4731034 Please sign the petition and then forward this message and/or petition to as many people as you can think of. P.S. Did you know that the museum was founded in 1886 as the result of a petition with only 30 signatures? https://learning.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/pathways/the-royal-treatment/petition2/
