A Call from the Coast


Bridge to a Cool Planet

Call out for strong action to reduce the pollution that causes global warming by coming out to Bridge to a Cool Planet (Vancouver’s contribution to the International Day of Climate Action) on Saturday, October 24. The event kicks off in the northbound lanes of the Cambie Bridge at noon with Vancouver’s mayor, Oxfam ambassador Christina Ora and others.   At 12:30 pm, a parade will go from the bridge to Science World for more celebration from 1 to 4 pm.  There, there will be an eco/green business fair, two performance stages with bands, bhangra and other acts through the day, and 350 salsa dancers for three hours in the gazebo.  From 7pm, there will be public discussions and and speaker events downtown.

In this video, Vancouver’s mayor summons citizens to come out and add to the strength of the message.

One excerpt:

“Vancouver shows again we are serious about climate change and turning the corner. […] We want to have the biggest and loudest demonstration here in Vancouver to make our voices heard for the whole planet — and make sure that national governments step up and do their part for climate change.”
