If you are against the Enbridge pipeline, and would hate to see an Exxon Valdez scenario along our fragile coastline, make time on your lunch break today to show some support for those who are fighting desperately to stop the project, and stop tanker traffic along our coast.

WHAT: Rally and march calling for federal ban on oil tankers for BC’s north coast.
WHEN: Tuesday, Aug. 31st, 12PM
WHERE: Across from Enbridge’s Vancouver HQ (Pender and Burrard)
Urge government to ban oil tankers from BC’s fragile north coast. We need a ban now to protect our coastline from an Enbridge pipeline project that would bring more than 225 tankers in and out of BC’s dangerous northern waters each year.
The rally will start at 12PM near Enbridge’s Vancouver headquarters (SE corner of Burrard and Pender), and march to the Vancouver Art Gallery. We’ll hear from campaigners and Members of Parliame…nt working to protect our coast. It coincides with a hearing in Kitimat held by the Joint Review Panel appointed to review the Enbridge project, and is coordinated with a rally in Kitimat.

It is relevent to mention – since I consider this pipeline project a sell-out – this wonderful film created by two independent film-makers prior to the last election. Twyla Roscovich and Paul Ross made this film out of love and concern for British Columbia, and it is both hauntingly beautiful and politically relevant, long after the horrific day Gordon Campbell became premier for the last time… If you did not have the opportunity to watch this before the last election, watch it now. It will be the scariest 9 minutes of your life.
