Today, Saturday, April 29, 2017 at around 12:30pm a protest march had begun. The protesters were gearing up at Marine Park with several motorcycle cops looking like they would rather be anywhere else but there. IThe Salish Sea environmental protest was regarding our current administration’s lack of care or concern of environmental protections.
The protesters of varying ages and ethnicities were excited and well behaved. The protest march looked much like a very large family outing with people carrying very imaginative protest signs, friends marching and talking with each other, husbands and wives smiling as each held their own protest signs about the importance in protecting the earth, mothers holding the hands of small children, college students walking their dogs as they marched along with the rest and one small confused Chihuahua whose whose owner had dressed him up as a bumble bee.
