On September 25, Joni Mitchell's new album of songs called SHINE was released by Starbucks. Her first recording of new material in approaching a decade, the CD features the track This Place which celebrates the Sunshine Coast and decries the likes of "Miners poking all around" to tear down the hills "And sell them to California."

Again we locals are grateful to Joni for bringing our struggle against open pit mining to the world stage.

Despite trying to live quietly on the coast since 1969, Joni has been provoked once more to speak out against the monied interest that "makes mountains into molehills" and requires courage and grace to help "save this place."

We are sure this pristine place is very grateful for her support. Long may she evoke such hope and long may it be realized.
