On Tuesday Nov. 21, at 11:30 a.m., the Queen’s Backing Action on Climate Change (QBACC) assembled in front of the Chateau Laurier to rally against the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline project. The group cited negative environmental implications and a lack of Indigenous consultation as key issues to address.
Although the group was small, they were loud and present, with horns and chants flooding Rideau Street. Many attendees carried signs to catch the eye of pedestrians and passing vehicles.
The rally came in response to a speech given by Alberta Premier Rachel Notley on the morning of Nov. 21 in Ottawa. Notley has long touted the benefits of the pipeline for Alberta workers and the Canadian economy, and came to Ottawa in part
to encourage Trudeau to intervene in a recent allegations by Kinder Morgan that the city of Burnaby is intentionally delaying permit approvals for the pipeline.
