Please arrive at 8:45am on Friday morning to the Chances Convention Centre (below the Casino) to receive your free scarf with a salmon insignia on it to demonstrate our silent opposition to Enbridge's tar sands pipelines and supertanker proposal. (We have a limited number of scarves, so we're giving them out on a first-come-first-served basis).
Metlakatla will be drumming in to open the hearing, and will deliver an opening welcome. They would like to see as many people in attendance for this as possible! Please make every effort to attend, even if only for a short while. (Of course you are welcome to attend the entire two days). The hearing is open to the public. All are welcome.
