Protest in Nelson one of dozens against Trans Mountain Pipeline sale

Nelson was one of dozens of sites across the province holding protests against the Trans Mountain Pipeline from Kinder Morgan.

Monday’s ‘Day of Action’ was billed as a way to speak up against the pipeline sale by joining forces outside local MP offices or other visible locations throughout the province.

About 150 people gathered in front of City Hall in Nelson.

Petitions signed by more than 265,000 people opposed to the pipeline purchase were to be delivered to the federal government yesterday.
