A day after an injunction was ordered in BC Supreme Court, Site C protesters are packing up their camp near Fort St. John.
It’s been nearly 4 months since the cabins and tents went up, the base camp for local First Nations and farmers protesting BC Hydro’s controversial dam project.
The injunction was to take effect midnight last night, but protester Yvonne Tupper with the Treaty 8 Tribal Association says they have been given a few days to move their items from the camp …
“The RCMP that are out there now … they have given us leniency to move our stuff if we can.”
Tupper says what can’t be moved straight away are some of the cabins, which will be airlifted out of the area at BC Hydro’s expense.
