Pipeline protest set for noon Monday in Williams Lake

Lakecity residents to join in day of protest across Canada

Residents in Williams Lake will be joining others across the country in a day of protest to oppose the federal government’s purchase of the Trans Mountain Pipeline today.

The protest in Williams Lake is set for noon Monday in Herb Gardner Park, said local organizer Jodie Capling.

“We want to send a message to Trudeau that we don’t want our taxpayers dollars spent buying a pipeline.”

Capling is encouraging protesters to wear red to symbolize their outrage at Trudeau’s decision.

Herb Gardner Park is located along Oliver Street, in front of Williams Lake City Hall where in April council voted to send a letter in support of the controversial project.
