Why Stretch Across BC?

Here in British Columbia, we have one of the last temperate rain forests in the world. Old growth cedar forests stand on the edge of a wild coastline, dotted with indigenous communities who draw their identity, and livelihoods, from the forest and the sea. Those communities—and everyone on the west coast — are threatened by a proposal to pipe dirty bitumen from the Alberta tarsands and load it onto tanker ships.

Five nations along Enbridge's Northern Gateway route are standing up to protect their Great Bear Rainforest home from pipelines and tankers— and they've invited yogis to stand with them. These nations need our help to go to court to defend their traditional lands. They stand as our best chance to stop this destructive project and to slow down climate change.

Instead of a pipeline, let's create a long line of people to Stretch Across BC!! To learn more or to sign up, come to the Facebook event at 1518407458402855/.

If you always knew yoga had the power to change the world ~ then be the change. Join us.
