Vigil Against Kinder Morgan Pipeline in Ottawa

350-coc-km-vigil-20161121-20393

 

Last night, I was asked by 350.org and the Council of Canadians to come out and cover the Ottawa vigil organized to oppose the Kinder Morgan pipeline proposal.

That shot up here is probably the best one that came out of this gig. I was able to get it towards the end, as people were scattering.

The proposal would see the construction of a pipeline from the tar sands in Alberta to the city of Vancouver, to allow for the shipping of diluted bitumen to the Chinese market, significantly and dangerously increasing the tanker traffic in choppy, dangerous waters of the west coast.

The vigil was one amongst many organized by 350.org throughout the country, to raise awareness about the issue, as the government is about to make its final decision on approving, or refusing the proposal.

Here are a handful of the better shots to come out from the event, happening during the first snowfall of the season.
