Take Back The Power
Cope 378 Launches New Drupal Site
The premise of this site is to raise awareness and create a community voice that will be strong enough to influence and effect the outcome of the BC provincial election in 2009. The goal is to encourage and inform the majority of voters to mark their ballot in 2009 for a candidate that supports the return of all BC Hydro’s operations to public control.
It is their belief that Canadians are on the verge of loosing waterworks to privatization and the BC government is responsible for selling us out to the private sector to companies like Accenture.
The site provides the public with useful and informative knowledge and statistics on the political history surrounding the privitization of BC Hydro, Accenture's "legacy", and it is a space where the public can get involved. Anyone can register on the site and join the conversation by blogging about the issue, commenting on other people’s opinions or by taking a survey to help the cause.
Erik Hermans really enjoyed heading up this project, working primarily with Lori Winstanley from Cope378, who was amazing to work with, and also in joining forces with graphic artist, Huw Evans, who delivered consistently and with some truly exceptional work.
This will no doubt prove to be a powerful tool in building a community for a just cause that effects us all. Get online and Take Back The Power!
