Greenpeace activists climb atop Parliament Hill

Protesters unfurl banners mocking Canadian "inaction"

Nineteen Greenpeace protesters were able to scale buildings on Parliament Hill this morning to unfurl banners mocking Canada’s climate change policies. Fourteen climbed atop West Block, while another five scaled above an entrance to Centre Block. All have since been removed and the RCMP is now investigating how the activists were able to gain such access.
