Ramp up climate action

On discovering that their mother tongue is not shared by everyone, tourists have been known to redouble their efforts to communicate by raising their voices.

The scientific message is already loud and clear.

We're winning. [Yesterday,] on behalf of it's 500,000 members, Vancity released a letter to the Port Authority saying it must not proceed with a coal port at Fraser Surrey Docks until our Health Authorities' concerns have been met.  [Just minutes ago] (yesterday) Delta and White Rock councils both passed motions rejecting the coal export environmental assessment as inadequate.   Our momentum continues to build, and we're not going away.

Can you join us today (Tuesday) for a powerful silent demonstration to help drive this message home to the Port?

Usually the conversation goes something like this: "Scientists tell us we're getting close to the point of no return. We don't have much time left to drastically cut our carbon emissions."
