PDAC, the largest gathering in the world for the global mineral industry, begins on March 5. Every year, over 25,000 people descend on the city of Toronto for this 85-year-old trade show and convention. Some have called PDAC the “Superbowl” or the “Oscars” of the extraction industry. But why does it happen here? What is it about Toronto that makes this city PDAC’s perfect home? It’s certainly no accident.
Join us on a bus tour through the “belly of the beast” to untangle the secret webs of power and money that connect our city to some of the most harmful and toxic mining and extractive projects around the world.
The tour will end with a rally outside the PDAC convention.
12pm – The buses will leave from OISE
12-1:30pm – Bus tour (the tour will be approximately an hour long, no walking will be required)
After the tour – Rally at PDAC (at the Toronto convention centre) featuring Rhythms of Resistance!
