Protesters take a stand against Northern Gateway pipeline

More than 100 people gather in front of MLA Eric Foster's office

Opposition to the Northern Gateway pipeline took to the streets of Vernon Wednesday.

More than 100 people gathered in front of MLA Eric Foster’s office to speak out against a proposed oil pipeline in northern B.C.

“We don’t want our environment destroyed by oil,” said Dianne Perrier, rally organizer.

Many protesters took to the microphone to express their concerns about a pipeline and tanker traffic along B.C.’s coastline.

“It’s the largest intact rainforest in the world and we can’t risk it,” said one man.
