Council of Canadians chapters from coast-to-coast-to-coast converged in Ottawa this past weekend for our Groundswell annual conference and took to the streets on Saturday to say #ProtectOffshoreNSMikmaki and #StopKM!

We were led in the march by the slogans of Montreal chapter activist Robert McBryde! To see a video of the march with those slogans/chants and some powerful speeches made outside the Prime Minister’s Office by Dorene Bernard Andrea Harden Robin Tress and Harjap Grewal, please click here.
