Saturday, Sept. 29 - The Day to STOP Gateway!

Local groups and citizens preferring rail and busses to more highways will be out in force this Saturday at two Gateway-related events, with a mass bike ride between them!

The first event is The Spirit of Sustainability at the Unitarian Church in Vancouver (949 West 49th at Fremlin, just east of Oak), starting at 3pm. There will be some truly excellent speakers, displays and entertainment.

Then at 5pm, outside the Westin Bayshore Hotel in Coal Harbor, there is Hello Al, Goodbye Gateway, a rally to welcome Mr. Gore to Vancouver and to demand action on climate change, with more great speakers and entertainment. Bring your banners and prepare to make some noise!

Bridging the two events, for anyone on a bike, is a mass ride from the The Spirit of Sustainability Rally to Hello Al, Goodbye Gateway Rally! Meet at 5:00pm at the Unitarian Church, by the bike parking. The ride leader is Stan Jang stan.jang[at]

Can you feel the groundswell of opposition against Gateway?

Zero Waste Vancouver’s anti-Gateway flyer can be downloaded here – feel free to print up some copies and distribute them at Saturdays’ anti-Gateway festivities.

See you there!

The Zero Waste connection to Gateway is "goods movement." The products coming in on those container ships are designed for the dump. They will soon become a liability to the local communities across Canada where they are shipped and eventually sold.

Is this any way for a federal or provincial government to build a strong Canadian economy?
