Maude Barlow speaks at 'no pipelines, no tankers' protest

Maude Barlow gives a great speech at the Defend our Coast rally in Victoria. "Pipelines are the arteries and the blood lines of the Tar Sands. If we allow these pipelines to go ahead this means the oil industry will be setting energy policy in Canada because they will demand that the pipelines be kept full."

NO to the Tar Sands pipelines - No to Enbridge! No to Kinder Morgan! and no the the fracking pipelines for LNG (liquified natural gas).
