British Columbians stopped oil tankers from travelling our waters 30 years ago, and we can do it again. Hear speakers from the Dogwood Initiative describe how oil tankers threaten local ecology and how they contribute to Canada’s increasing production of greenhouse gasses. This presentation will prime you on the risks oil tankers pose to our coast and the globe. More importantly, it will arm you with the tools to stop them.

So, here are some things I found in SharedVision to get out and do, especially for those of us who indicated at the meeting that we wanted to get out more:
There is an event called Green Drinks on April 18th at the Steamworks in Gastown. It starts at 5:45 and goes to whenever. The idea is that it is just a chance to meet and chat, socialize, connect with others who are passionate about environmental and sustainability issues . Go to email@example.com [well, email them] for more info. :)

I have a fear of flying. I always have and it sucks. By the time I leave an airport, I am usually so grateful to be coming away from the experience with my life that I never seem to even notice if there are annoying things about the way the airport is run. Jen, from Vancouver's Beyond Robson, however has more to say on the subject of YVR being a little under par.
The Vancouver summer Fireworks extravaganza will not run this year if they can't raise the funds. I think they need $1 million to do it. This is a wonderful event that brings peope together from all over the Lower Mainland. I am prepared to pledge $100. Would you like to join in? How about the company you work for? Ask your boss!I can ask Vancity to set up an account to collect the funds.let me know what you think and what you are prepared to pledge!
