Public Awareness Saturday- Dogwood Initiative

We'll be at the Public Awareness Saturday event in New Westminster on May 30th. For more information, check out a link here as well as the information below.

Join Dogwood Initiative and our partners at Voters Taking Action on Climate Change and Communities and Coal for a peaceful Day of Action concerning the Fraser Surrey Docks coal export project. We will poster the streets, gather signatures on the Beyond Coal petition, and share our stories as to why we oppose this project and what we can do to stop it in its tracks.

We will meet at the Tin Soldier between the River Market at the New Westminster Quay and the Fraser River Discovery Centre at 11am on Saturday, May 30th. This event will last until 1:30pm.

Fraser Surrey Docks has amended their proposal to build a coal transshipment facility. Instead of barging coal up the Fraser River, now they want to become a fully fledged coal port with tankers carrying thermal coal from the United States.

If you think this is a bad idea, you're not alone. We need to get organized in directly impacted communities so that British Columbians can have a say in projects that impact their home. We'll be asking people to join us and organize in their community to defeat this proposal- after all, communities across BC are still saying no to this shortsighted project.

Join us in New Westminster at the Tin Soldier near the Quay to gather signatures, share stories, and poster the streets with a public service announcement.

This is going to be a good one.

With hope,
