Council of Canadians organizer Harjap Grewal took this photo of Maude Barlow and campaigner Maryam Adrangi moments ago in front of signage in Burns Lake (about 230 kilometres from Prince George) as they make their way there for tonight’s ‘no pipelines, no tankers’ tour stop. Maryam notes, “Other messages spray-painted were ‘tyranny rules here’, ‘oppression hurts’, and ‘no to Enbridge’.”
It’s currently -19 degrees Celsius with light snow in Prince George.
This evening should be great – Caleb Behn (Eh-Cho Dene/Dunne-Za and Law student) and Sven Biggs (Tanker Free BC) will join Maude at the University of Northern British Columbia for the 7 pm event.
The local Prince George newspaper quotes Maude in a report posted just now, “We’re here to say that it’s BC’s right to say no to these tankers. They have to let the government here in British Columbia know that they mean business. 50 municipalities, and 132 First Nations communities said absolutely no you won’t come through my community. We’re building a united fight against all of the pipelines.” That’s at http://hqprincegeorge.com/news/local/news/Local/12/10/30/No-Pipelines-No-Tankers-Tour-in-PG-Tonight.
