This is really beautiful to see everyone coming together!! Over 100 communities came out!! United We Stand!! Way to go Everyone!!


"Between runaway climate change from the tar sands and the Rob Ford Toronto train wreck, Canada is getting a lot of bad press these days.

But on Saturday, Nov 16, thousands of beautiful Canadians from coast to coast to coast were determined to change that story. We dare you not to be inspired by this.  
Please share to help grow this movement!"
 Defend Our Climate!!

From the YouTube -about page.
http://www.defendourclimate.ca - On November 16, 2013 Canadians stood up in over 130 events across the country to defend our climate and communities from pipelines, reckless tar sands expansion and runaway climate change.

Together we sent a clear message: Canadians want to turn the corner on reckless, dirty energy projects that endanger our climate and our communities, and create an economy that's built to last with energy that is clean, just and safe.
