The evening of June 17, hundreds of people stopped rush hour traffic on Georgia Street to voice their opposition against the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline.

The demonstration at the CBC building at Georgia and Hamilton streets was held just hours after the government of Prime Minster Stephen Harper granted conditional approval for the project.
