Defend Our Coast protest, Victoria, B.C.

Today, thousands of British Columbians and allies will be outside the provincial legislature to protest the egregious Northern Gateway pipeline.

The pipeline is a bad idea for so many reasons: because it will fuel the destructive growth of the bitumen sands, because of the forests that will be affected by the spills that are certain to happen, because of the dangerous and biologically important waters where hundreds of oil tankers will need to run, and because this is the wrong time to be making giant new investments in fossil fuels.

The time has come for us to behave smarter. Hopefully, these protests will help more people see that.
