There are Climate Marches taking place in communities across BC on November 29th.

Lets get a lot of bikes out to show support for bold climate action including our Billion for Bikes campaign. Please let us know if you are interested in collecting Billion for Bikes petition signatures.

If you are planning on going to a march or another event, please print out a few petitions and ask people to sign them. We were at MEC in North Van Saturday and there was great response. Everyone I asked was eager to sign.
Here is the pdf: http://www.bccc.bc.ca/everyone_petition (printing in Black & White is fine)
Here is a brief script:
Hi, I'm with the BC Cycling Coalition
We are encouraging the BC Government as part of their Climate Leadership plan to enable everyone in BC to cycle and walk for their daily trips by investing $1 billion over ten years in paths, protected bike lanes and sidewalks.
Please sign our petition.
If they are not keen about giving their email, say we need it to follow up with them in January regarding public consultation for the Climate Leadership plan
Then contact us afterwards so we can arrange getting the signed petitions to us.
