Protesters marched down Burrard Street to Vanier Park today to show their solidarity against a pipeline that could cross over 800 bodies of water if built.
Protesters of all ages came together Sunday, on World Oceans Day, to stand beside the First Nations community and protest against the Northern Gateway pipeline project.
Nanaimo resident Maureen Adkin says she is attending the rally on behalf of her family and all ocean life.
“We will not allow pipelines on this coast. No tankers, no pipelines, what part of no do you not understand, it’s two letters: N-O.”
Adkin and other protesters promise to continue rallying if they feel their voices are not being heard.
This rally comes just days before a decision is to be made on the construction of the pipeline.
