RCMP arrests on Burnaby Mountain will not deter opposition to Kinder Morgan
VANCOUVER - RCMP have arrested at least 12 Burnaby Mountain caretakers and supporters today, as police moved in to remove a long-standing protest presence against Kinder Morgan's pipeline survey crews.
The caretakers have been camped out to stop Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline geotechnical survey work. Arrests included Kaleb Morrison, Erin Flegg and Adam Gold, who have been on site for months. There is also a tree-sit underway at Borehole 2 to protect that site.
On Monday evening there was a mass protest in solidarity with the caretakers of Burnaby Mountain, and organizers say these arrests will not deter opposition to Kinder Morgan.
