The second All Ages Activists’ gathering was held Aug 12 at Trout Lake Park. This event was deliberately kept low key because so many of the young participants said they wanted to go but were out of town or working. Luckily the weather was warm and sunny and more than 20 people managed to find our tent and picnic blankets despite the vague directions! Cecilia Point, Musqueam activist, gave a stirring song of welcome and an inspiring speech about responsibilities and action. Sarah Mitchell, a student from McGill, talked of how she and fellow student, Alison Gu, had just finished cycling across the country to protest the Kinder Morgan pipeline. It was so inspiring to hear her passion and commitment to the cause!
