quote:

NANTICOKE, Ont. — Several Greenpeace activists who boarded a coal-toting bulk ore carrier on Lake Erie en route to the Nanticoke power plant have now chained themselves to the ship.
Spokeswoman Joslyn Higginson says the five activists that boarded the “Algomarine” in a bid to delay the delivery of nearly 30,000 tonnes of coal are now bracing for a visit from police


quote:

Green Party leader Frank de Jong applauded Greenpeace’s actions, noting the Liberal plan to phase out coal by 2014 isn’t good enough.

Interesting to see if Frank de Jong is able to get any traction out of this.
