Protesters take to streets in Vancouver

first_imgSeveral dozen demonstrators marched through downtown Vancouver on Friday evening to protest Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric and victory in the presidential election Tuesday.Roughly 75 people joined the march — which started at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on East Fourth Plain Boulevard, then headed down and back up Main Street — with a few others joining along the way.As they marched, holding signs decrying Trump and his policy proposals, they earned intermittent honks and cheers from passing cars and bystanders, and occasional hoots of disapproval.Owen Snoey and his wife, Peggy Sue, helped organize the march.For Owen Snoey, the march was less about protesting the results of the election than the message he’s heard from Trump and his campaign.“I think this has been such a contentious election process. To me, we really need to kind of get about that, and look at, really, what the principles of this country are all about,” he said.last_img
