Opponents of the hazardous waste recycling facility proposed for Cannor Road are meeting in Chilliwack Friday to strategize a way to stop it from being built.

They’re offering site tours to media, and plan to offer a prayer, drumming and song for the river.

Sto:lo cultural historian Sonny McHalsie will be on-site at the proposed Aevitas facility at about 10 a.m. explaining the significance of the area to Sto:lo from a contemporary and historical point of view, from nearby cemeteries to fish resources.

A meeting of the 48 groups in the coalition will be held at Sto:lo Nation later to determine the group’s next steps.
