The City of Burnaby has served a 72-hour eviction notice to Kinder Morgan pipeline protestors camped out on Burnaby Mountain.

Officers arrived at the Camp Cloud base on Burnaby Mountain on Wednesday and gave protesters notice that they will have until Saturday morning to leave the area.

The camp is located along Shellmont Street and Underhill Avenue. Protesters have set up tents, RVs, and temporary shelters in the area.

The City said the notice explains that “the current activities and structures at Camp Cloud are in contravention of various City of Burnaby bylaws, are of serious safety concern, are causing a public nuisance to the residents of nearby neighborhood, and must be addressed immediately.”

The City says it has attempted to “work with individuals at the protest site” but “has not received cooperation or willingness to address concerns.”
