Last Friday, a B.C. judge gave the protesters until Monday afternoon to take down their camp and make way for Kinder Morgan crews to continue their survey work in the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area.

But as Monday's 4 p.m. deadline to leave arrived, the protesters defied the court order and staged a rally instead. Many vowed to stay and block the company's access to the work areas, despite the risk of arrest.

Then on Wednesday morning, two Burnaby RCMP officers arrived at the camp to speak to the protesters around 8 a.m. PT, but they did not arrest anyone or say when any arrests might take place.

Kinder Morgan is proposing to route its Trans Mountain pipeline under the mountain as part of its proposed expansion of the oil pipeline.
