Vancouver Island cyclists spreading tanker warning

Cyclists bring B.C.'s coastline protection message to legislature

A group of cyclists with a message are departing from Campbell River on Friday (May 18) and plan to arrive in Victoria four days later.

Calling their campaign Cycle to Protect Our Coast, the cyclists will be chatting with people in communities along the way about the potential ecological dangers of additional oil tanker traffic on B.C.’s coast. The campaign is related to the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline and the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion projects.

The cyclists will arrive at the Victoria legislature for a community discussion at 12:45 p.m. on May 22.
