Police have swooped in on protesters who claimed to have seized a Kinder Morgan drilling barge in Burrard inlet.
Burnaby RCMP Staff Sergeant Major John Buis says seven arrests were made as the protesters were taken off the barge,
“Early this morning Burnaby RCMP were asked to remove the protesters as it was not safe for them to remain on board and they were impeding the work being performed on the barge.”
Buis says charges could be coming.
“We are recommending charges of mischief under the criminal code.”
He says the barge is private property and anyone who follows the protesters footsteps can also expect some police attention.
