“We invite you to attend as we will be explaining why water, and particularly Burrard Inlet, urgently need our protection,” said organizer

“As Burrard Inlet is the site of the terminus for the planned Trans Mountain second pipeline, and the loading docks for the shipping of highly toxic diluted bitumen, we will be going in to present Mr. Fuhr with water that I have personally collected from the shores of Burrard Inlet.”

The rally will be held at No. 102 – 1420 St Paul Street, Kelowna.
