London chapter builds anti-pipeline snake

The Council of Canadians London chapter has sewn, built and created various banners, props and installations for protests over the years. But chapter members count their 30-foot anti pipeline snake as one of their most creative. The black snake was meant to represent the Line 9 pipeline, and has the words, “Enbridge: 800 spills so far, not worth the risk, protect our water, our land, our health. Stop line 9” stitched on its side. Recently the chapter held a “Make the Snake” workshop to restore and rebuild the eye-grabbing prop.
