Ride the Tide 2015 Gets the No Tanker Message Out

On Friday July 3rd, Haida Gwaii came together on Masset inlet to show their support for a Tanker-Free ocean, and rode the tide from Gaauu (Old Massett) to Masset harbour.  Part of Pull Together’s “Week to End Enbridge,” the ‘Ride the Tide’ event shaped up in true Haida Gwaii style with Christian and Candace’s Haida Canoe alongside paddle boarders and kayakers from across the islands.  There was a crush of people, naaniis (grandmothers), youth and spectators all along the shore following the action and cheering on the paddlers.

A huge thank you/haw’aa to Christian White and Candace Weir for bringing the canoe out.  As well to Guy Kimola for documenting the event so well, and Jim Hart and his crew for coming out to show their support.  Haw’aa to Harmony and Old Massett Youth Centre for providing rides.  A big haw’aa/thank you to all who came out to paddle and take show that Haida Gwaii stands unified in protection of our waters!
