The ULTIMATE team to support a TIME OUT
Today at the Canadian Ultimate Championships in Halifax, Halifax's Red Circus (in red) and Ottawa's Pheonix took a time out to collectively ask the Canadian government for a time out on dragging in the high seas. Thanks for the support guys, and good luck on the field! (Click on photos to enlarge them).
Day 5: Honk for the High Seas
It's time to have a TIME OUT on dragging the high seas. This morning, Halifax motorists learned that this campaign is on now because the UN will vote on the moratorium in November. Special thanks to the bus drivers and truckers that honked their horns in support! Next week we'll be at a new location with our signs. Stay tuned to find out where.....

Day 4: Age of Aquarius
All we are saying is....give PISCES a chance! On Day 4 of the sign campaign, Halifax drivers were informed that the Ecology Action Centre wants Canada to give the fish in the high seas a chance by protecting their habitat from dragging. This morning, many people honked and waved at us even before reading our signs, showing that commuters are becoming aware of our campaign and support this cause. The same motorists will get a chance to catch us again tomorrow when we end the work week with one more demo from this location. See you then!

Day 3: Campaign in Full Force
Have you put the puzzle together? In Halifax, all three signs were out in full force this morning: More Fish, More Responsibility, Moratorium on High Seas Trawling. With the third sign in place motorists seemed to have picked up on the message of our campaign. It was obvious by the over abundance of honking this morning that this issue is one that is near and dear to the hearts of Nova Scotians. If the public are concerned about high seas dragging shouldn't the Canadian government be as well?

Day 2: Still Fishin'
Ahhh ... There's nothing like a 6:30 a.m. wake-up call. Anything for the fishes. Today in Halifax, a second sign was added, reading "More responisbility". We received many enthusiastic smiles and honks.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's poster finale!
More fish ... More responsibility ....

Day 1: More Fish Please
Pederstrians, cyclists and drivers were curious yet confused with the FIRST of three signs in Halifax.
