Please note the staging area for the rally will be on the U.S. side of Peace Arch Park. The information that we have been provided by CBSA is that participants could be asked for proof of Canadian residence and/or proof of citizenship/immigrant status. The easiest way to provide this would be through a Canadian passport. In the alternative, government issued photo id (i.e.- driver’s license) and birth certificate or Canadian immigration document.
Rally attendees are encouraged to car pool. Some unions are providing bus transportation for their members. As well the B.C. Federation of Labour will be providing bus service from Scott Road Skyrtrain station. If you are interested in further details regarding buses, or would like to confirm you will be using the bus charter system please email firstname.lastname@example.org or continue to check this page for updates.
