As part of the International Day of Action on the Climate Crisas, residents of Surrey, BC modified a sign advertising the Gateway program. Light duty vehicles are already the largest source of ghg emissions in the lower mainland and the the Gateway program is projected to increase those emissions.
Two signs on either side of the Pattullo Bridge were modified. The banner added to the signs reads, "CANCELLED, Funding Diverted to Transit Improvements by LiverSmater BC, www.livesmarter.bc 'helping the Province go green'"
The group also created a new website, www.livesmarter.bc, which parodies an official government program designed to help citizens reduce their ecological footprint.
