Five nations along Enbridge's Northern Gateway route are standing up to protect their Great Bear Rainforest home from pipelines and tankers— and they've invited yogis to stand with them. These nations need our help to go to court to defend their traditional lands. They stand as our best chance to stop this destructive project and to slow down climate change.

The need to reframe our conversations about environmental concerns has emerged as a key priority for many who work to protect the health of our small blue planet. Solid scientific research pointing to the impacts of climate change, degraded water quality, habitat destruction and toxics have failed to mobilize sufficient public, government or corporate action to address these and a host of other environmental issues. As communicators, we are just not connecting.
EcoFair at the Barns is a fun, family-oriented event that informs and inspires people to make greener choices in their homes and communities. Last year, there were more than 30 exhibitors and interactive activities. Approximately 800 people came out to learn about green initiatives and achievements in our neighbourhood and in our city, explore new ideas, and share green tips and tricks.
This year, join us on Sunday, November 23rd (noon-4pm) and celebrate progress towards a greener and healthier future!
