Kinder Morgan pipeline protesters on Burnaby Mountain face injunction deadline

Protesters blocking survey work by pipeline crews on Burnaby Mountain in B.C. have until 4 p.m. PT today to clear out or risk arrest. 

The injunction was granted by a judge on Friday after the company argued protesters have been interfering with survey and drilling work it needs to complete for submission to the National Energy Board on the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

The court injunction states that protesters must remove their camps and barricades from areas where Kinder Morgan is trying to drill bore holes for a proposed tunnel under Burnaby Mountain.

Karl Perrin, who speaks for Burnaby Residents Opposed to Kinder Morgan Expansion (BROKE), says the protesters will find ways to continue to oppose the project.

"We're going to stand on the safe side of the street. We'll be dressed in black and holding candles for a silent vigil. I'm going to be making up a black coffin which will say, 'Kinder Morgan greed kills justice,'" said Perrin.

Perrin says, BROKE will also be busy raising legal funds.

Kinder Morgan is suing the organization and some of its members for $5 million for trespassing.
