Defend Our Coast rally took to the halls of City Centre Mall

Defend Our Coast protestors took to the mall in Kitimat to oppose the Northern Gateway Pipeline proposal.

Shoppers and retailers in City Centre Mall may have been surprised to see a crowd of people approaching 100 circle the upper floor, rallying against Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline proposal.

The group met outside of MLA Robin Austin’s office outside at 12:30 p.m., joining a province-wide movement of Defend Our Coast rallies, which started in Victoria this past Monday, where nearly 4,000 people attended the lawn of the legislature to oppose oil pipelines and tankers.

Speaking at Kitimat’s rally was Douglas Channel Watch’s Murray Minchin and the Haisla Nation’s Gerald Amos.
