We will be meeting behind the Boat House, (116 Gordon) on the river at 2:30pm. From there, we will gather and collectively march down to Loyd Longfields office, to deliver water and hold a rally.
(40 Cork St East). Drummers and Singer welcome!

Kinder Morgan is poised to start a key phase of construction on a pipeline and tanker project that would put hundreds of rivers and streams at risk of oil spills — but a powerful movement is rising up to defend the land, water, and climate.

On March 10th Coast Salish spiritual leaders and members raised a traditional Coast Salish Watch House near the pipeline route which will act as a base for resistance to the project. 10,000 people in Metro Vancouver marched in solidarity on the same day. Now, Indigenous leaders and local residents are preparing to take bold action on the ground.

A massive people-powered confrontation in BC is already tarnishing Trudeau’s reputation as a progressive leader committed to climate action, coastal protection, and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples — and if we show how big the national movement against pipelines is we can convince the Trudeau Liberals that pushing for Kinder Morgan to be built is not in their best interest.

On March 23rd, people across the country will take to the streets for a National Day of Action to Defend the Water. We’ll gather outside our MP’s offices, and then go inside to deliver samples of water collected from the coastline in BC threatened by Kinder Morgan oil spills. With the power of water from the frontlines of resistance, we’ll demand that our MPs put pressure on Trudeau to stop pushing for the pipeline. Guelph needs to support First Nations people, and coastal ecosystem on the coast, lets fight this pipeline together!

We need as many people as possible to show up so we can send a powerful message. Can you join us?
