Event Description

Your support will be critical to help stop proposed coal exports in BC. Join us this Sunday, March 17 at 12:00 noon at Semiahmoo Park in Blaine for a cross-border demonstration against coal to support the activists in Canada fighting coal ports proposed there.
Currently, there is a proposal to build a coal terminal in Surrey, British Columbia, just south of Vancouver. If this terminal was to be built, we would see up to 10 coal trains a day moving through Washington to ports in Canada.
British Columbians believe we can do better than coal. Already, the cities of White Rock, Delta, Surrey, New Westminster and Vancouver have all expressed concern with the coal export proposals. We have the opportunity to join them on Sunday at noon, when they'll be standing up to the dangers of coal export on the Canadian side of Boundary Bay in White Rock. 
Join us to remind the people of British Columbia that they're not alone in this fight and that together we can do better.
For questions, contact Matt Petryni at 360-303-1660 or e-mail
