The Council of Canadian's Edmonton Chapter and the Prairies-NWT Regional office have been excited to help with Climate Justice Edmonton's “People on the Path” this summer, a series of giant portraits that will be installed in the path of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project route.
The project officially launched on August 19th at the Whitemud Park in Edmonton, just metres from the pipeline's route through the city. It is set to include 25 larger-than-life paintings of Albertans, First Nations and Métis peoples who are opposed to the now-estimated $10-billion tar sands pipeline project. Standing 8-feet tall, the bright portraits will be installed directly along the route of the pipeline and will display quotes of participants’ hopes and visions for the future of Alberta.
Climate Justice Edmonton has been collecting submissions for the past two months and says they’ve received responses from people of all ages and from all backgrounds.
