Activists plant mock fracking rig on Christy Clark’s lawn
A mock fracking rig was set up at the Vancouver home of Premier Christy Clark on Sunday by about a dozen people protesting against proposed liquefied natural gas development in Northern B.C.
The group, called Rising Tide — Coast Salish Territories, put the rig on Clark’s front lawn at about 10 a.m.
Police told them to move the rig, which they did, said acting Sgt. Blair Canning of the Vancouver Police Department.
