Vancouver Says No to Enbridge, Kinder Morgan Pipelines, Tankers
Close to 2,000 people turned out on a rainy Monday afternoon in Vancouver last week to speak out against Tar Sands oil tankers on BC’s coast. The occasion marked the 23rd anniversary of the disastrous Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. The crowd gathered at the Art Gallery to hear from guest speakers like 350.org’s Bill McKibben and members of the Heiltsuk First Nation of Bella Bella, who coorganized the rally, along with ForestEthics and Greenpeace. Following the speeches, the crowd marched to Enbridge’s Vancouver headquarters to tell the pipeline giant how they feel about it’s proposed Northern Gateway pipelines.
