On May 1st in Vancouver there was a PEACEFUL march against the proposed pipelines here in BC including Enbridges Northern Gateway and Kinder Morgan’s Transmountain which would run right here through our harbor. There is a video that shows an inncocent highschool kid who was doing nothing more than taking photos of the march when he was assaulted with excessive force and arrested by the VPD…. What I see here disgusts me. Not only did they treat the kid this way, they treated some of the protesters in similar ways too. This country is silencing the people who are speaking up for what they believe in, and doing everything they can to get these pipelines built even though the majority of people oppose them. It makes me sick what is happening here in my own city. This country isn’t acting like Canada anymore, and hasn’t for a long time… We need a change and we need to stand up for ourselves. I hope this Canada day isn’t a day full of celebrations as usual, but a day where we show how we feel about whats going to happen if we don’t stop the Harper government.
