On September 20th, as world leaders gather for the UN climate summit in New York, Canadians and Americans, First Nations and Native American tribes, and all the diverse communities of the Salish Sea will gather at the Peace Arch to send a unified and clear message to world leaders: it is time for unprecedented action to defend the Salish Sea and our global climate from fossil fuel development.
