Divided by a snowy city street and conflicting views, protesters on both sides of the pipeline debate in B.C. directed their ire at a shared target on Wednesday: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
As Trudeau arrived in Kamloops, B.C., for a campaign-style visit and town hall, some protesters donned yellow vests and carried signs that read “Carbon Tax Cash Grab” and “Trudeau for Treason,” expressing concern that a failure to follow through with planned pipeline projects would cost Canadians their jobs.
Others worried that Trudeau was shirking his promises to protect the environment and reconcile with Indigenous groups.
“Indigenous groups” as in Tides and other foreign money.
