May 10th was a National Day of Action across Canada, with demonstrations protesting government plans for expanding oil pipelines, tankers and tar sands.
In Victoria, BC, the day started with the local chapter of the Raging Grannies coming on stage as an oil slick.
There were concerned clowns…
and an endangered bear with a ballad.
Good reviews from the bear’s best friend.
BC’s Premier, Christy Clark, is due to make a decision in June on whether to allow the Northern Gateway pipeline to move oil from the Alberta tar sands thru British Columbia’s Pacific Coast.
With rising concerns about the growing climate crisis—
on this day in May, there was reason enough to cheer.
