As one of several protests marking “defend our climate” day of action, a crowd has gathered in Vancouver to rally against the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline.
Artwork and banners are coming out as the crowd at Sunset Beach in Vancouver is growing.
Organizer Ben West says they’re expecting a decision by the Conservative Government on the Northern Gateway Pipeline soon.
“So this is kind of the last big event that’s happening before that decision comes down. We are holding this event in part to call on the Prime Minister to do the right thing, to listen to the voices of the people of BC.”
West says although the pipeline would bring economic benefits, the government should focus on long term investments instead.
