Thanks to all of you who attended the rally. Those who could not may wish to write letters to their local papers.

Join Zero Waste BC at a rally against the the Canadian Energy-From-Waste Coalition (CEFWC) on Wednesday April 10th at 12:30pm. These incinerator salesmen will be in town to sell their pollution to the region.

Date: Wednesday April 10
Location: Sheraton Vancouver Airport 7550 Westminster Highway, Richmond BC Meeting time: 12:30 pm.
