VANCOUVER — An Indigenous protester opposed to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion interrupted a speech by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a Liberal fundraiser on Wednesday.

“What do you tell your children?” George asked. “I honour my ancestors, my children, by protecting my lands and waters. You threaten our lands and waters. How dare you bring that through our waters? Those are our spiritual highways. You have no right to do that to us.

Greencrow says:  No matter what the pro-pipeline people say...how they argue for the environmentally destructive shale, fracking product--oil--be sent via pipelines to the coast...it is the oil tankers that will kill the BC environment.  All that tanker traffic will finish off the few orcas that still swim in coastal waters, the salmon and other fish.  Our coasts, once burgeoning with life when I first started to sail around the coast 42 years ago, are already almost dead.

Why do British Columbians have to pay the price for a fuel that everyone admits has seen its day?  It's like having your only son be the last soldier to die in a losing war.
