I was among at least 2,500 or more participants in the Protest against the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline at Victoria’s Legislative Buildings. While I was there, I ran into Oak Bay residents, personal friends and North Saanich residents. Bracing against a chilly wind, dignitaries, notables and ordinary citizens, stood together and stood up, to defend our BC coastal communities and marine environments. I was impressed with the number of young people who linked arms, held signs, sang and clapped, as speaker after speaker spoke against the pipeline.
I also saw some clever signs:
Stop Prime Minister Tarper
There Is No Planet B
What Happens in Alberta, Stays in Alberta
My compliments to the local police forces as well. They stood quietly and I noticed a respectful and peaceful atmosphere while I was there earlier in the day.
