The demonstration is the latest in a series of actions across the country supporting Wet’suwet’en land defenders as the RCMP removes them from a pipeline construction route in northern BC.

This morning’s protests began in front of the Supreme Court at 800 Smithe at Hornby and has now moved to Granville Street.

VPD is warning commuters of traffic and transit delays in the area.

Tuesday’s demonstration caused major delays for vehicles and transit, with bus wait times of more than 70 minutes.
