“Canvassing for AFA has been an amazing way for me to engage with my community about the issues of old growth logging, conservation and sustainable forestry, which are all issues close to my heart. Canvassing is also a great way to develop communication skills and gain valuable experience in the non-profit world. Plus, you get to work with the coolest people!” — Cassandra Bunk, Victoria Canvass Team
