Come Toast the Coast to send message to Harper: 'Beaches are for people, not oil'
Live bands and a rap battle roasting Prime Minister Stephen Harper are among the draws at Toast the Coast at Jericho Beach on Sunday, June 13.
The “family-friendly” beachside celebration of Vancouver’s pristine coastline is planned to send a message to the Feds that people — not oil — belong on these beaches. A nine-foot floating lantern in the shape of a salmon based on the design of Roy Henry Vickers is planned, as well as live painting, food trucks, and hands-on art installations.
Following a territorial welcome a few speakers will shed light on the reason for the one-day, no-waste event (ie. bring your own utensils and water bottles) complete with bicycle valet. More information is available at toastcoast.org ( #toastthecoast). Event is organized by Greenpeace.
Live music lineup includes:
Monica Lee Band
Rap battle roasters featuring:
MANIK and Bearodactyl
