“It was an incredible day," Prince Rupert city councillor Jen Rice said.
“We may associate negative feelings and negative emotions with this project, but the irony of it is that it actually brings people together.”
According to the CBC, Hartley Bay councillor Cameron Hill has said in the past that he is willing to die to stop the Enbridge project.
“Because I don’t know any other life," he explained. "This is the life I have and been brought up in. This is what I want my kids to enjoy. And I want them to have the life that I have had, which I consider to be the best life ever.”
