Maple syrup thrown on an Emily Carr painting at Vancouver Art Gallery by climate activists

Anti pipeline climate activists threw maple syrup on an Emily Carr painting and glued themselves to the wall at the Vancouver Art gallery.

A spokesperson for Stop Fracking Around said 19-year-old Erin Fletcher, and another person threw maple syrup on the Emaily Carr painting “Stumps and Sky” on display in the Vancouver Art gallery.

The spokes person said the “protest” action at the art gallery was to draw attention to the global “climate emergency”.

He says the group wants to shut down Costal Gaslink pipeline in Northern British Columbia. which is currently under construction from Dawson Creek to Kitimat on B.C.’s north coast.

“It’s just a question of trying to get the public and especially our leaders to actually respond to the climate emergency which Canada has declared,” says Marshall in an interview. “That’s the logic behind it.”

There have been several “protests” and ecoterrorist attacks the Coastal Gaslink of the years. Most recent there was a violent ecoterrorist attack with axe swinging, flare gun shooting assailants at the Coastal Gaslink drilling pad that was under construction earlier this year in February.

When finished, the Coastal Gaslink will supply Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) to the global market to meet the demand for cleaner energy.
