Protesters pack Comox Rec Centre
More than 700 people braved a chilly Saturday afternoon in Comox to protest the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project, as a review panel continued to listen to oral hearings from residents inside the recreation centre.
With a heavy police presence surrounding the crowd, people from Nanaimo, Victoria, the Gulf Islands and the K'omox First Nations came together in a peaceful protest to sing, chat, dance and voice their opinion against the proposed pipeline.
The Enbridge Northern Gateway Project is a proposed two pipeline system 1,170 km long stretching from Bruderheim, AB (north of Edmonton) to a marine terminal in Kitimat, B.C.
