Also known as the "Veggie Bus Tour" 

Earlier this year, a group of young people, concerned about the apparent indifference of the Canadian Government towards the issue of Climate Change, Global Warming and the Kyoto Protocol, decided to challenge the Prime Minister with "The Bet".

The group of 30 students cycled across Canada accompanied by a retrofitted school bus fueled on vegetable oil, leaving B.C. on May 7 and ending their journey in Halifax on Septermber 20. Almost 5 months of stopping in villages and towns everywhere to meet with people and explain their mission. Highway7.com has been following their progress through a series of emailed travel logs. You will enjoy reading about some of the adventures they have encountered. On Highway 7, the Caravan stopped in:

  • Antigonish - Sept 17
  • Necum Teuch - Sept 18
    While in Necum Teuch, the group was hosted by Highway7.com, Mrs. Marie Martin, and the Bay of Islands Center. If you would like more information, write, or call (902)-347-2602
  • Oyster Pond - Sept 19
  • Halifax - Sept 20
