Fight to win
Support our work: VIC FAN is autonomous, anti-racist, eco-feminist, and fierce in defense of the land. Our work is 100% community-funded, with no grants from big business, Big Greens or any governments.
FAN vs. Enbridge: We started an international divestment campaign to drop Enbridge stock, starting with Vancity Credit Union. FAN coordinates the annual Caravan to Unis'tot'en Camp to support indigenous people blocking the pipeline route in Northern BC.
FAN vs. Marine Trail Resort: Defeated a West Vancouver developer's plan for a 300-home subdivision along Juan de Fuca Marine Trail Park. This plan for a massive vacation-home development between China Beach and Sombrio Beach was an unacceptable violation of a much-loved wilderness trail. FAN mobilized thousands of residents to the island's largest public hearing, and delivered the legal report that knocked that plan out of the park.
FAN vs. Bear Mountain: Fought to preserve indigenous heritage sites at SPAET (Skirt Mountain) and exposed developer Len Barrie's unethical and illegal practices, which helped lead to his downfall at the hands of creditors and Revenue Canada. Barrie is bankrupt, but many indigenous heritage sites remain on SPAET.
