There was a mass arrest on Parliament Hill on Monday during a protest against the Kinder Morgan Pipeline that runs from Alberta to British Columbia.

The protest was organized by a group of young people and students who say twinning the pipeline so it can deliver triple the oil daily is detrimental to Canada’s environment.

“It would have the same climate impact as adding 32 million cars on Canada’s roads, and at a time when we desperately need action on climate change… we can’t sign on to projects like Kinder Morgan,” said Cameron Fenton, an organizer with Climate 101.
