RBC Protest at the Centre on Barton

The Elders for Climate Sanity were at RBC at the Centre on Barton on Friday, 14 April, talking with customers and passersby outside the bank about RBC’s fossil fuel investments and encouraging people to put their money into a credit union instead.

Several people took our information and were supportive.

Two members tried to meet with the manager and were angrily turned away.

Outside, a security guard told us we were on private property and to move to Barton Street. FOUR security guards watched over the SIX of us and the manager threatened to call the police, saying we were harassing customers. We refused to leave and no police arrived.
