Rally In Vancouver

Canada Action is helping to organize a rally in Vancouver on March 10th to support construction of the the Trans Mountain pipeline, and LNG projects. Join us.

When: 2 pm, Saturday, March 10, 2018

Where: Canada Place, 999 Canada Pl, Vancouver, BC

The existing pipeline has operated since 1953, without catastrophe.

If we can’t build new pipelines, BC and all of Canada stand to lose billions of dollars in government revenue that pays for police, firefighters, roads, hospitals, teachers doctors and nurses, plus Indigenous communities will be denied the right to lift themselves out of poverty. 51 First Nations support this project.

And in addition, hundreds of thousands of jobs related to the oil and gas industry could vanish – jobs that put food on the tables of BC families and across the country.

Show your support for fair trade Canadian oil and gas produced to the best environmental standards on earth and representing the largest single contributor to Canada's economy. Bring a sign and your voice – we’ll provide the coffee and donuts – all we need is YOU!

Please remember the is a positive, respectful, non-partisan event.

Together we can make a difference. Join us!

Rally in Calgary

Show your support for the Trans Mountain pipeline!

A rally has been organized by Canada Action for Friday in downtown Calgary.

When: 3:00 pm, Friday, February 23
Where: 950 6th Avenue SW (Calgary Centre MP Kent Hehr's office)

The Trans Mountain Expansion Project will create thousands of jobs, generate billions of dollars for public services like healthcare and education and give Canada direct access to world markets and world prices.

Not only has Trans Mountain received provincial and federal approval, it is also the most thoroughly-reviewed project in Canadian regulatory history.

We’re asking MP Kent Hehr and Prime Minister Trudeau to put the full power of the Federal Government behind the existing approval of this critically important national infrastructure project. Together we can make a difference!

Activists Need To Take The Time To Understand What They Are Opposing

As I said I would in my last post, I attended the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMX) Ministerial Panel Public Open House. Also as promised, I gave my presentation. I then sat through four hours of activists talking about why they don't want TMX. I detail my experiences at my personal blog but want to share the highlights of my post-presentation experiences here.
