Pro-pipeline supporters protest Trudeau in Kamloops, British Columbia
Over 200 protesters showed up Wednesday outside a hotel in Kamloops, British Columbia, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a campaign-style speech over a fundraising lunch indoors.
Protesters wore yellow vests, influenced by the widespread anti-carbon tax movement in France, and held up brightly colored signs in support of pipelines.
Similar to the French protests, the demonstrations in Canada has shifted from anger over rising taxes to an expression of overall dissatisfaction with Trudeau's leadership.
14 people were arrested on Monday in northwestern British Columbia over a protest against construction of a natural gas pipeline by Coastal GasLink, a key part of the $40-billion LNG Canada project.
