We value healthy communities. We want to protect farmland, Fraser River salmon, sandpipers, Burns Bog and all the other things that make our region special.
All these things are threatened by massive port expansion and the push to export more oil and coal from Metro Vancouver. If you agree, please join us on Oct 27th so together we can start taking back our port.
We deserve a say in how our region develops, but our Port Authority isn't listening to our concerns. They're making big plans behind closed doors -- plans that will impact our health, our communities, and our future. It's time we open up those doors and demand a seat at the table.

It's time the Port listens to more than just industrial interests and port users. They need to know that we do not support their massive development plans.
It's time we take back our port!
