About 100 Rupertites took part in Save our Seafood Chowder — Defend Our Community, an outdoor rally held across from Atlin Terminal on Saturday put on by the Prince Rupert Environmental Society and the TBuck Suzuki Environmental Foundation.
The event was a peaceful rally that included speeches, as well as seafood chowder for those in attendance. Roth said the chowder represented what could be lost if oil were to be shipped out of Prince Rupert.
Prince Rupert’s event was one of many around Canada on Nov. 16, which was Defend Our Climate, Defend Our Communities National Day of Action protesting against the expansion of the oil development and export industries.
