wildsalmonpeople.ca

This was another very quickly done site for Alexandra Morton. It was done in aid of her campaign to preserve the West Coast marine ecology.

wcel.org
launched: Friday, January 8, 2010

This is a Brad Hornick site.
The site had a lot of archived content (reports and publications). Making this archive accessible presented a challenge. I created custom content types and taxonomies for this information then set up the Drupal Faceted Search module to provide a way of retrieving the information.

biketoworkmetrovan.ca
launched: Tuesday, September 1, 2009

This project is a very successful one.
Cyclists register on the site. They form teams and log the kilometers that they ride on their way to and from work.
This application integrates with a a custom built calculator application (built by Passion for Action) that tracks the distances of the individual riders and teams. The site gives participating riders an indication of what kind of positive environmental impact they are having by using the bikes instead of their cars.

launched: Monday, September 1, 2008

www.adopt-a-fry.org
launched: Tuesday, February 5, 2008

This was a very quick wordpress site that was designed to fundraise for Alexandra Morton's Supreme Court Challenge.
This little site proved to be very successful.

"But she earned plenty of media coverage after she added a PayPal link to her adopt-a-fry.com website. Donations poured in – small contributions that don’t qualify for tax receipts but helped finance court action against the provincial government.
Morton not only won the declaration that Victoria has no regulatory power over fish farms, she also won approximately $100,000 in costs, which the province has already paid."
