Salish Sea Summer Gathering

  • Whey-Ah Whichen 4158 Dollarton Hwy North Vancouver, BC, V7G 1A2 Canada (map)

Kinder Morgan wants to twin the Trans Mountain pipeline, which runs between the tar sands and the Salish Sea putting up to 400 tankers per year through our inlet. The Salish Sea Summer Gathering is a day to celebrate opposition and deepen our understanding of the issues. Please join the Tsleil-Waututh Nation Sacred Trust in our fight to stop the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion and protect the sacred waters of Burrard Inlet and the rest of the Salish Sea.

I"ll be playing during the singer/songwriter's circle on the solar-powered stage from 2-4pm, and with Ta'Kaiya Blaney on the mainstage along with Canadian rock icons Chilliwack  and Juno-winner Holly McNarland.

A bicycle-powered Poetry Stage features literary artists reading the words of Chief Dan George. Traditional canoes, visual artists, EatART alternative energy industrial art, food trucks, Indigenous artisans, a community info fair and children's activities .
