  • Activist, author, and professor Tzeporah Berman at the Act on Climate March in Quebec City. She joins more than 25,000 people today.

    "All of these projects, whether it's Kinder Morgan pipeline or Energy East, are the last gasp of the fossil fuels industry. They are desparate to get that oil out to market. What we are seeing is that their desparation and their attempt to push these projects down the throats of unwilling communities has sparked resistance all across the country and so I think that this year, we are starting to see all of those individual communities and campaigns come together to form a strong national movement. It's the coming together of the environmental groups with Idle No More, and local community groups opposing their pipelines.


    They say these pipelines are nation building and I think they are right. They are building a nation of resistance and given that it's an election year, we are going to see more and more Canadians standing up."
