Rise & Resist
SEA Door to Door Canvassing Pilot ProjectAt our May meeting, we received approval to forge ahead with a pilot project for July and August whereby SEA would offer a very small team of members, supporters and/or allies a paid opportunity to canvass door to door for the causes that mean the most to us. The canvassing team would receive specialized training from the project’s coordinator, a longtime canvasser in the community. Canvassers would be equipped with maps, a binder, receipt book and all the knowhow necessary to ensure this project is a success and becomes a stable source of funding and outreach for local grassroots eco-socialism and Indigenous solidarity.
The ‘pitch’ at the door:
- Requesting financial support for ongoing grassroots campaigns (fish farms out, pipeline resistance, farmland protection, peace and disarmament, Indigenous solidarity), and events/panel discussions endorsed by SEA (eventually we could offer incentives for donating - discounts, giveaways, contests, flash drive with additional info/resources/links/ebooks/podcasts)
- Requesting signatures for petitions
- Educating people on the issues
- Promoting events and inviting people to them
- Collecting emails and contact info for SEA eblasts
Approximately 4-5 canvassers working Monday - Thursday. 6 pm to 8:30 pm are optimal hours.
Canvassers would act as private contractors and would receive remuneration based on a standard commission-based model:
50% to canvassers, 10% to canvasser coordinator, 40% to SEA
We would like to arrange a small meeting for those who would be interested in learning more and/or participating in this project as canvassers.

Victoria Street Ruckus for Wild Salmon!June 18th, 2018
Wharf St and Government St
Victoria Tourism Centre
The Indigenous-led struggle to protect Wild Salmon from the ravages of the open-net pen aquaculture industry is reaching a head this June 20th, when the provincial tenures on 20 of the 22 fish farms in the Broughton archipelago are scheduled to expire.
Salmon protectors of the Namgis and Musgamag'w nations who have diligently occupied fish farms over the last year to enforce their eviction from their territories where they have operated for thirty years without consent, deserve our support at this critical moment!
So please join Ernest Alfred and other Salmon warriors in Victoria's city streets to let John Horgan know that these tenures must be revoked, if Wild Salmon are to survive the impacts these disease-ridden Atlantic salmon feedlots are having on native salmon populations.
Open-net pen fish farms are an ecological and human rights calamity that must be stopped, for all we love about this coast, for all that depends on wild salmon!
So on Monday, June 18th, 4:30 pm, Victoria Tourism Centre, Wharf and Government St. please march with us and tell your friends, family and co-workers too!
