Two Thousand Citizens Say "No!" to Oil Tankers and Pipelines in Prince Rupert

Approximately two thousand residents of Prince Rupert and surrounding areas joined hands with the Gitga'at Nation on Saturday morning to oppose the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway oil tanker and pipeline project. The crowd estimate was provided by the Prince Rupert Fire and Rescue team.

The largest citizens' rally against Enbridge to date, Saturday's event drew citizens of all ages and walks of life, and featured musical performances by Bif Naked, Murray Porter and Shane Yellowbird, as well as powerful speeches by First Nations leaders and radio talk show host Rafe Mair.

Key message: This thing isn't going to happen.
