NO MONEY FOR DIRTY OIL
Big Oil has many tentacles - and so, thankfully, does the campaign against it. This one heads to Bay Street. The Financial Walk Of Shame supports BC's Unist'ot'en Camp, fighting to protect Wet'suwet'en territory in the northwest interior of British Columbia from Chevron's proposed Pacific Trail pipelines carrying fracked gas. The march delivers a message to the top banking backers of Chevron to back off support for dirty oil. Today (Thursday, March 28), 8:30 am. Free. RBC Head Office, Front and Bay. facebook.com/RisingTideToronto.
