Gateway to Global Warming Rally

with 3 comments

The BC government’s massive highway expansion program will dramatically elevate the Lower Mainland’s greenhouse gas emissions and undermine efforts by the people of this province to combat global warming.

The Gateway 40 Citizens network invites Gateway opponents to a rally on Thursday June 12th (11: 30 to 1:30) outside the Premier’s Climate Change greenwash to the Board of Trade.

Speakers’ lineup and other details to follow.

  2. From the Province’s Gateway website:

    “The PMH1 project was a key element of the 1996 Livable Region Strategic Plan for planned transportation improvements.”

    I was unable to find the 1996 version of the LRSP. Can anyone confirm that this is true?
