Don't Give Up! Town Hall Canvassing
Protect the Planet is helping to present a Town Hall and we need your help with CANVASSING to reach new people and uplift youth voices.We will raise awareness at this Town Hall. The event features Cedar George Parker, other youth speakers, Rueben George of Tsleil-Waututh Sacred Trust, and more.
Why? There is a youth movement rising this summer against Trans Mountain. The youth want to protect orcas, salmon, birds, and the inlet from the threats this pipeline and tanker expansion brings. Their vision has the power to unite people and bring harmony back to the land. This is their vision and their future; they need our support now.
Canvassing Shift Details: Help us by signing up for an advance canvassing shift (or three). We will easily prep you with current info and talking points. You don't need to know lots, plus it's fun!

Volunteers share their experience
"I have been so happy to be out walking weekly in all weather, in the world of trees and birds, seeing the seasons change. I've been in such good company: all ages, all backgrounds, doing something important. Collecting "intelligence" has been fun, a sort of grown-up cops and robbers! I would never have believed the little green space between the railway and the highway was home to so many trees, plants, berries, birds, mice, voles, rabbits, otters, a bobcat, and a bear. It has kept me sane and motivated during the pandemic, it has expanded my spiritual practice, it has given more meaning to my life, it has made me more familiar with other ecological NGOs, and it has given me a new and vital appreciation of Indigenous Planet Protectors and their worldview."

"I live on Gabriola Island, BC, Canada, and toured the tree sit in August. It was inspiring, so I volunteered for the media team. I was able to stand at my desk at home and help manage the large amount of compelling video from when Trans Mountain and law enforcement moved in. Not having to be at their desks allowed people to be on-site and delay the pipeline for another two weeks. It was, at times, hard but it was satisfying work." LORNE
