Civil disobedience continued Saturday on Burnaby Mountain, as 16 more protesters were arrested after crossing the police line while activists continued to rally against a proposed oil pipeline.
Burnaby RCMP Staff Sgt. Major John Buis said to date there have been 53 people arrested for interfering with Kinder Morgan’s survey work on the mountain.
The arrests were peaceful, with supporters shouting words of encouragement to those who crossed the line. Some shouted “thank you” to those being handcuffed, while taunting the officers standing guard in a cordoned-off area, saying “You’re on the wrong side of history” and “Cross the line and join us.”
