Indigenous students ditch school to meet at the Vancouver Art Gallery for a demonstration against Trans Mountain

A walkout was held in Vancouver to oppose Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline.

The proposed, multi-billion dollar project would run from Edmonton, Alta., to Burnaby, B.C.

While some First Nation communities along the route have signed onto the project, others oppose it.

Students at a high school in Vancouver skipped class to join a rally that opposed the project.
