On the afternoon of Thursday June 5th, activists staged a mock marriage at Regina City Hall in protest of the proposed Trans-Canada East Pipe-Line, which will run through the southern part of Regina. 

A post card was distributed for people to sign, asking Regina Mayor Foguere to reject the proposal.

Activists Bob Hughes and Evening Star Andreas played the bride and groom, while Susanna Deranger officiated. 

The “Energy East” pipeline is expected to carry up to 1.1 million barrels of crude per day, including diluted bitumen, through Canadian communities from Empress, Alberta to Saint John, New Brunswick, with the potential to disrupt and pollute countless sensitive ecosystems and waterways.

The intent of these pipeline projects is to promote the growth of Canada's the tar sands, which are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions responsible for climate change.
