Dogwood Initiative: Day of Action to Defend B.C.’s coast on Monday, Oct. 22 in Victoria

Dogwood Initiative
An unprecedented day of action to defend B.C.’s coast is nearly upon us. Since we wrote to you a week ago, hundreds of people have committed to attending events in 48 communities across the province to send a clear message to our MLAs that B.C.’s coast must be protected from oil tankers, pipelines and spills.

The event is just a few days away. Find a community action near you:

Some of you are wondering what the difference is between the event in Victoria on Oct. 22 and the province-wide action on Oct. 24, and we’d like to help clear that up.

On Monday, Oct. 22, a Defend Our Coast rally is happening at the legislature in Victoria.

Then, two days later, on Wednesday, Oct. 24, Dogwood Initiative is helping organize a day of action at MLAs’ offices across the province. Why are we throwing all of our efforts into the second event? First, we know there are thousands of No Tankers supporters outside of Victoria who want to take action and second, our voices are most powerful at the local level.

As next year’s provincial election ticks closer, we need you to connect with your MLA as part of a larger push to persuade the provincial government to do more to protect our rivers and coast.

The exact start time and locations depend on your community. Find time and location details for your community:

Please join us in your community on Wednesday to tell your local MLA B.C.’s coast must be protected.

For the coast,

Eric, Celine, Ben, Karl, Emma and Lyndsey on behalf of the Dogwood team

P.S. Your MLA’s job is to represent you. Make sure they know where you stand on proposals to bring oil pipelines and tankers to B.C. by signing up today.
