The Freedom Train recently arrived in Winnipeg.

The coalition of First Nations groups from British Columbia is travelling across Canada by rail in protest of the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project.

A group of Manitoba First Nations welcomed the coalition at the Thunderbird House. The Freedom Train members are making their way to Enbridge’s annual shareholders meeting in Toronto set for Wednesday.

They hope to spread the message against the Enbridge pipeline to all Canadians along the way.
