Trans Mountain protests not hindered by arrests

Trans Mountain protestors say that threats of arrest will not hinder their efforts to stall the pipeline.

Participants in the protests say that they will continue to grow their numbers despite facing up to 14 days in jail, and fines of up to 5 thousand dollars.

Protestors are actually predicting the number of arrests to eclipse those of the War in the Woods logging protests of 1993.

To date 211 individuals have been arrested since the arrest policy was put in place in March.

According to organizers, the media attention of the arrests has only helped their cause, with more than 20 thousand people pledging support.
