On July 4, thousands across the country from Atlantic Canada to British-Colombia mobilized on foot, bike and boat to show that we are greater than the tar sands and standing for Jobs, Justice and the Climate. They proved that together, we are ready to move to a new, justice-based economy that works for people and the planet.
