Protesters Rally In Canada Against Trans Mountain Pipeline Extension | OilPrice.com

Approximately one hundred people gathered on Monday in the Canadian capital city of Ottawa to protest against the planned expansion of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline.Billed by rally organizers as “the largest act of youth-led climate civil disobedience in Canadian history,” the mostly student protesters journeyed from the University of Ottawa to Parliament Hill. The marchers carried signs reading “Keep it in the Ground” and unfurled a banner reading “Climate Leaders Don’t Build Pipelines.”Originally it had been reported that up to one hundred protesters were arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) for attempting to break security barricades. The RCMP later clarified, saying that some fifty demonstrators were briefly detained for trespassing and ticketed without arrest.
