Subject: THIS SATURDAY - Site C rally outside federal Liberal convention
Dear all,
We’re organizing an impromptu Site C rally outside the federal liberal convention this Saturday. Please come and/or spread the word!
I’m pasting a sample email below – feel free to tweak etc. We’ll be sending out an e-blast to the Sierra list.
SUBJECT LINE: Saturday – lighting Site C rally outside the federal liberal convention

Dear /Name/,
Breaking news! We have just learned that federal Justice Minister, Jody Wilson-Raybould – who has attended the Paddle for the Peace twice – will be speaking at the federal Liberal Party convention in Victoria on Saturday!
Please join us for a lightning rally at the main entrance to the Crystal Garden on Douglas Street-- 11:30 to 1:15 pm. 
This is an amazing opportunity to remind the federal Liberals of their campaign promise to honour treaty rights. The federal government has the power to halt Site C, the biggest violation of Treaty and Aboriginal rights in this country right now.
Where: Main entrance to the Crystal Garden at 713 Douglas Street
When: Saturday, March 12, 11:30-12:15
Please bring signs!  Signs and banners with a message about honouring the treaties will be especially effective as a visual message.
