Rainy skies didn't deter a crowd of Whistler locals from gathering in the village on Sunday, June 6 to continue calling for an end to old-growth logging in B.C.
Carrying handmade cardboard signs and drums, demonstrators met in Whistler Olympic Plaza at noon before marching up the Village Stroll.
Sunday's demonstration was held in solidarity with the hundreds of British Columbian and First Nations activists who've been blockading the area surrounding Fairy Creek since last August, all in an effort to stop a forestry company from logging portions of the last unprotected, intact old-growth valley on southern Vancouver Island
It was Whistler's third local protest in as many weeks, following last weekend's rally at the intersection of Highway 99 and Lorimer Road.
