TALE OF A YELLOW BIKE
Playing at the Projecting Change Film Festival FRIDAY, APRIL 3rd. Followed by a discussion with director, Tina Hahn
In a world of automobiles, can one yellow bike make a difference? Of course not. But a fleet of bikes might create a new model for sustainable transportation. TALE OF A YELLOW BIKE follows manager of the Toronto Bike Share Program, Maogosha Pyjor, as she struggles to keep this non-profit community service alive at a time when its principle and contribution to the environment should be indisputable.

ELECTORAL REFORM - REFERENDUM MAY 12, 2009
On Friday, March 27, a group of supporters of BC-STV will participate in the regular Critical Mass ride. Just as Critical Mass empowers cyclists to take back the road, BC-STV empowers citizens to take back our democracy.
Did you know that under our current voting system, approximately half of all votes are wasted (meaning that half of votes cast don't elect an MLA)? Is it any wonder that so many people don't vote? If BC-STV becomes our new electoral system, 80-90% of votes cast will go towards electing an MLA.
BC-STV was chosen by the Citizens' Assembly on Electoral Reform. They chose BC-STV because it produces fair results, offers greater voter choice and encourages cooperation amongst political parties. Isn't it time for an end to swing politics in BC?
If you support electoral reform, please join us on March 27!

Title : Urgent Update - Machine at Blockade Site
A small machine has been brought onto the site through an adjacent property rather than the road access where the blockade is. A larger machine to do the actual demolition could be arrive at any time - we expect the ministry's contractors to attempt demolition later today or tomorrow.
So if you were planning to come out, make it today or early tomorrow morning.
See post below for directions.
