Suits and Boots Announces BC Resource Tour Schedule

Suits and Bootstoday announced its schedule for its BC Resource Tour that will visit 30 communities in the province during the month of August and September.

“We’ll be listening to ideas and feedback and hearing how we can best help move the needle in advancing the interests of the resource sector in British Columbia,” said Rick Peterson, an Edmonton businessman and founder of Suits and Boots, a national not-for-profit of investment industry professionals who support the resource sector.

“This work will help us build a strong base that we can use to continue our fight against the snake pit of foreign-funded groups that are trying to choke off our resource industry in Canada. Our intital out-reach calls to people in these areas was exceptionally strong, so we’re excited to get out on the road.”

On May 26 the group held a rally in Langley, BC, in support of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline and worked with four other resource groups to coordinate pro-resource rallies simultaneously in Fort St. John, Kitimat, Smithers and Fort Nelson. The joint coordination of these five events resulted in what has been the single largest show of support for the resource sector to date in Canada.
