Rally Says: “No to Enbridge” as Hearings End.

"The Answer is Still No" Rally

Over 500 people rallied in Terrace on the eve of the final arguments of the National Energy Board hearings into Enbridge's tarsands pipeline/tanker project.  T.  Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation rallied the coastal people and organized buses for those who needed them.  There was a good turnout from Rupert, Lax Kwa'laams and Kitkatla.   They joined the hundreds who came from inland communities in the Skeena watershed. Coastal and upriver Skeena MLAs were there as well as representatives from many First Nations Councils and hereditory Chiefs. There was good national coverage.  This CP story on CBC has some good quotes but their headcount (200) missed the hundreds sheltering in the shade around the rim of the park.
