COPE’s 2012 Summer Barbeque at Vancouver Rowing Club

As always, this year’s COPE‘s Summer BBQ will be hosted by the Vancouver Rowing Club in Stanley Park. There will be local music, a speaker, a silent auction, and a cash bar to go along with your barbecued meal.

It’s a great way to get in touch with your COPE Executive and other progressives from around the city!

We will be host to a speaker who will be focusing on the Kinder-Morgan pipelines planned for Vancouver and the movement that is building to oppose them.

Our musical guest will be local East Vancouver jug band “The Creaking Planks”. There will be a performance at 8:30pm.
