As municipal governments from across northern B.C. were meeting in Prince Rupert last week, protesters rallied.
The protesters were in opposition to Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline to bring bitumen from the Alberta tar sands to a super tanker port in Kitimat.
While the event took place just as the paper was going to press, video of the protests is available online at: http://friendsofwildsalmon.ca
Posted by protest organizers, the footage shows a large number of protesters of all ages marching the streets of Prince Rupert and Nathan Cullen, MP for the region speaking against the pipeline.
“We have a power that cannot be denied,” said Cullen.
