We scored a significant win when the judge ordered the Province to stop demolition of the Foundry buildings until the full court hearing on February 26.

Since public attention has played a crucial role in this issue, it was critical to keep things simmering in the days leading up to the hearing. More than 300 people signed up to the 21-Day Challenge, agreeing to perform an easy, fun "virtual protest" assignment every day for the time remaining until the hearing.

Here are the tasks — they're all still relevant, feel free to do a few right now!
