Thank you, White Rock police.
I broke the law because I wanted to make a moral statement about the need to stop burning coal in order to protect our future from climate change.
I want to express my deep appreciation for the conduct of the White Rock detachment of the RCMP on Saturday. They treated all of us with the utmost respect and courtesy. They were candid and forthright in their communications throughout the day. They worked hard to ensure public safety while also accommodating our sincere effort to make a political statement through dignified public protest.
My interactions with the White Rock detachment and the community this past weekend have increased my appreciation of the strength and resilience of our society and its ability to protect and value free expression.
Saturday was a good day to be a Canadian citizen.
