Canada
About 200 people repeatedly chanted “build that pipe now!” at a pro-pipeline rally in downtown Calgary on Friday.

The rally, organized by the pro-oil group Canada Action, was planned to get the feds to stop Bill C-69, which would change how major energy projects get reviewed for their environmental, social and economic effects.

The gathering was also to promote the approval of the Trans Mountain project after Indigenous consultations are completed.

Calgarians rallied in support of pipelines on Friday.
