      The north side of the Vancouver Art Gallery was where this year's March on Vancouver kicked off.

      The annual event is held to draw attention to women's rights and gender inequality in the legal system.

      This year, there was also a focus on Black Lives Matter, the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, and Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs' opposition to the Coastal Gaslink pipeline on their traditional territory.

      Now call the March on Vancouver, it evolved out of a women's march held in January 2017 to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump as U.S. president.

      There was a fairly large crowd (see images below) today but nothing like the numbers that turned out two years ago.
