A small group of protesters stood in front of the Abbotsford Costco on Wednesday afternoon to raise awareness of their campaign to boycott the sale of Atlantic farmed salmon.
Eddie Gardner, leader of the Chilliwack chapter of the Salmon Feedlot Boycott and organizer of the hour-long event said the group was there to ask Costco to remove farmed salmon from their shelves.
The protest was peaceful as members handed out information leaflets and played native drums.
A representative from the Abbotsford Costco came out to ask the group to leave the property, but they refused.
