Protect the Inlet Flotilla : No Tankers in the Salish Sea

At least 12 Vancouver (and Victoria) Unitarians gathered with hundreds of water protectors and families from across the Salish Sea to support the Protect the Inlet Flotilla on Saturday, July 14, 2018.

The flotilla of canoes and kayaks gathered and paddle together from the ancient village site of Whey-ah-Wichen, or Cates Park, North Vancouver, across the Slilwat or Burrard Inlet, to the razor-wire fence that Kinder Morgan had erected in the water without consent.

Tsleil Waututh elder, Ta’ah Amy George, led a water ceremony.

Back in Slilwat/Cates Park, chiefs and other First Nations activists from across BC waited for the flotilla and celebrated their return with shared stories, songs, dances, and inspiring words.

Vancouver Unitarians Walk 4 the Salish Sea


We’re Changing the World One Step at a Time!

At least 22 Vancouver Unitarians participated in the Walk 4 the Salish Sea that began in Victoria on May 25 and ended at the Kinder Morgan terminal in Burnaby on May 28. One of us was present at virtually every stage of this march. It was an all-nations gathering against the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project and we were proud to be part of this public action.
