Robert Shirkey BBA, LLB

Executive Director, Our Horizon

The day such warning labels appear on a gas pump near you is coming closer, because of Rob’s tireless advocacy.  Retiring from practicing law and renting out his home while living in a cramped basement apartment in order to devote time and money to the cause, Rob has spoken to city councils across Canada, and provided them with a well drafted legal opinion to support his campaign to get warning labels on every gas pump in the country.  The City of North Vancouver is the first in the world to do so – and there are more on the way.  Expect oil companies to fight back.
