Today, I'm bringing you a roundup of some of the latest lawlessness happening around the Kinder Morgan work sites in British Columbia.
On Monday Global News visited the hobo squat that anti-pipeline protesters in Burnaby BC call, Camp Cloud.
Global reporter, Jordan Armstrong, said his news crew was threatened with violence, accused of racism and told not to film on public property where the protesters had set up their tents.
Also on Monday, an anti-pipeline protester named Ian Angus pled guilty in British Columbia to violating Kinder Morgan's court injunction. One of 175 people arrested so far at Kinder Morgan’s worksite, Angus received a $500 fine.
Greenpeace protesters are currently occupying a piece of drilling equipment belonging to Kinder Morgan at a Delta BC Industrial Park.
And what are Canadian leaders doing about all of this? A lot of nothing.
Last month, Justin Trudeau talked about a law that he would enact to assert and reinforce the government of Canada’s jurisdiction over pipelines.
Where's this law? And will it come too late to save the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion before Kinder Morgan's self-imposed May 31st deadline to make a decision on the project?
I think the battle for the pipeline is already lost.
