[quote]First Nations and residents of a community on British Columbia’s North Coast are protesting a proposed pipeline which would carry crude oil from Alberta to the west coast for tanker shipment to places like China.
The “No Oil Tankers” rally kicked off Saturday morning in a Prince Rupert, B.C. park and wound its way to a civic centre where First Nations leaders were scheduled to speak and musicians like Bif Naked were expected to perform.

[quote]More than 600 protesters have taken to the streets of Prince Rupert, B.C., to oppose Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline from Alberta’s oilsands to Kitimat, a port on the northern B.C. coast.
The super-sized rally is being hosted by the Hartley Bay First Nation, a tiny village at the end of the Douglas Channel — the main access point for tankers arriving at the planned Enbridge terminal in Kitimat.[/quote]
