– Oct. 4: An anti-pipeline protester marches down Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
About 200 protesters gathered outside Parliament Hill to demonstrate against a proposed pipeline project.
(Sean Kilpatrick/Canadian Press)The protests started after the federal government approved a pipeline proposal from Energy East, which would run from Alberta’s oil sands to the Atlantic Coast.
Protests have become an increasingly frequent occurrence in Canada in recent years, as the Liberals seek to build pipelines to ship Canadian crude to the U.S. Gulf Coast and the U,S.
But the protests are now coming to a head in Ottawa as the country seeks to become the first Western country to get its crude oil to Asia and the Middle East.
Demonstrators gathered in Ottawa on Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2018, to demonstrate their opposition to the proposed Energy East pipeline, which they say would undermine Canada’s sovereignty.
(Patrick Doyle/Canadian Forces)Demonstrations in Ottawa have grown in number since the Liberals took power in October 2019, according to statistics from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, a non-profit advocacy group.
The group said about 5,000 people took part in the protests that took place during the week of October 2-3.
“The energy protests in Ottawa are growing every week,” said David O’Brien, the group’s director of research and policy analysis.
“There’s a growing sense of anger that the government is doing things that are not in the best interest of Canada and Canadians.”

“I don’t know if they know how to deal with that, or they don’t have the same respect,” she said.
“You get tired of it.
You feel like you’re being replaced.”
Protests are increasingly common in Canada, O’Malley said, because of the government’s economic policies that have reduced the tax burden and increased the supply of jobs.
“We’re not going to solve this problem by going to the other side of the border,” O’Leary said.
O’Leary added that he believes that the oil and gas industry will be successful, but only if the government focuses on developing and protecting Canada’s energy resources, rather than investing in pipelines and other infrastructure projects.
Opinion polls show that Canadians are increasingly concerned about climate change and other environmental issues.
O’Meara, who is also the executive director of the National Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Ottawa, said Canadians need to be aware of the threats and concerns surrounding the energy industry.
“What we’re seeing in the world is an increase in economic activity that comes with increased carbon emissions, and the oil industry has been able to make a lot of money off of that,” he said.
In the last two years, Oodelman said, there have been more than 60 protests in Canada about the pipeline proposal.
The number of protests is expected to rise further as the government moves to approve the Energy East project.
Oodallas concerns about the project have not been shared with the public, but his organization is lobbying on the government to make the project more transparent and transparently explain its environmental impact statements.
“Canada needs to make sure that its public lands and its water and its environment are safe,” he added.
“But we need to also take this into account in the economic development of this country.”
