Rally outside the Bayshore Hotel

Hundreds attended two rallies this weekend to support the Livable Region strategy and oppose the gateway program. The first rally on Saturday was a standing room only event at a hall that seated 300 people.

The second event saw hundreds brave the cold and driving rain to rally outside an appearance of Al Gore and Gordon Campbell in Downtown Vancouver.

At both events experts from a wide background spoke on the negative consequences of the Gateway Program.

You forgot the 150 people upstairs in the balcony at the Church!

Thanks for the great photos - it's only been a couple of days, but already such wonderfully sweet memories!

Hi Rob -- too bad we didn't link up at the events. The session at the Unitarian Church was a real highlight for me; it's not often that you get that large a collection of learned and passionate people speaking!
