Stills by Brad Hornick used with permission.

This morning, at approx. 8.20 AM, the RCMP decided to make their move to arrest anyone violating the court ordered injunction in order to allow Kinder Morgan to continue work drilling bore holes in the Burnaby Mountain Conservancy, developing their plans to drill though the mountain and expand the Trans Mountain bitumen export pipeline, which would triple the capacity and require adding many more storage tanks to their Burnaby Mountain storage facility as well as increase oil tanker traffic through the Burrard inlet by a factor of four to six.

At 9.45 AM it was reported that at least ten people had been arrested, more than one of which are First Nations. There are many on the scene in the arrest-safe zone cordoned off by police, who are requesting the community respond by attending on site. There is at least one person remaining above one of the work sites though the RCMP have now forced all witnesses and journalists far away despite having previously established an injunction line much closer.

Peaceful protest people get treated with bruit force

View this link to see how police treated senior tax paying citizens who were holding a peaceful protest to protect our environment for our Children's Children. Totall unacceptable brute force with no concern for broken bones and years of suffering down the road from heartless machine. Shit will now hit the fan right legal observers, or have you also left the scene. These people should be fired. https://vine.co/v/OJdvIh2FHrK
