As the Endbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline hearings proceed in Kelowna today protests have already begun.

Roughly 100 people gathered outside the Sandman Hotel prior to, and during, the first few hours of the hearings, and over the weekend, and a major event is expected at noon today.

Rumours of a flashmob planned for 12:30 p.m. have yet to be confirmed, but it’s expected hundreds could turn up for the protest as Kelowna is the only city in the southern interior of the province included in the provincial judicial review panel’s community hearings roster.
