News - Gateway Rebellion Grows

This is part of an article published in the Georgia Straight
By Matthew Burrows

According to community organizer Carmen Mills, the popular support needed to stop the province’s planned highway expansion and twinning of the Port Mann Bridge is building to a crescendo.

And Mills told the Georgia Straight she thinks awareness of the human impact on the environment is causing this rethink. On February 1, the summary remarks for the fourth report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change stated: “Warming of the climate system is unequivocal.”

To Mills, also known through her organization of the annual Commercial Drive Car-Free Day, this is a rallying cry. She has launched Gatewaysucks.org, and on February 10 at the Waldorf Hotel, a party will take place in celebration of opposition hopes that the $4-billion Gateway Program can still be stopped.
