Every bite of this chocolate bar is an act of resistance against the Enbridge pipeline

      If you oppose Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project, you’ve probably tried writing letters, signing petitions, and marching in the streets to get your point across.

      How about gobbling up an organic chocolate bar for the cause?

      Sierra Club B.C. has teamed up with Denman Island Chocolate to launch the Simply Dark Pull Together chocolate bar.

      Proceeds from sales of the bar will go to Pull Together, a fundraising campaign supporting First Nations legal challenges seeking to stop Northern Gateway, as well as Sierra Club B.C.

      Created by Sierra Club B.C. and RAVEN Trust, Pull Together raised $350,000 in 2014 toward the legal costs of the Gitga’at, Gitxaala, Haida, Heiltsuk, Kitasoo-Xai’xais, Nadleh Whut’en, and Nak’azdli First Nations.

      “I am proud to support the Pull Together campaign,” Daniel Terry, president of Denman Island Chocolate, said in a news release. “First Nations deserve our full support in their legal battles against Enbridge’s proposed pipeline and tanker project. They are fighting for their survival and for ours too and it is essential that we do everything we can to bolster their efforts.”

      After debuting this weekend at the Canadian Health Food Association’s trade show in Vancouver, the Simply Dark Pull Together bar will be sold at Mountain Equipment Co-op and other retailers until June 30.

      Denman Island Chocolate will also sell them online in cases of 24 ($3 per bar).

      Wonderful chocolate but such schemes as this rarely benefit the "cause" du jour.: lefties harnessing the power of capitalism is always amusing.

      Can't wait for the "Ban the Electric Motor!!!" protests that are sure to come in a few years.
