Protesters with Save Old Growth are blocking the road leading to the terminal in an effort to convince the BC government to pass legislation halting logging of old growth trees in the province.

Daily Hive has reached out to West Vancouver RCMP for comment.
Save Old Growth did not say how long the demonstration will last. On Monday, they blocked the Massey Tunnel and Ironworkers Memorial Bridge.
Last week, the group announced it would be staging disruptions of “critical infrastructure” in BC.
