Pipeline protesters block trucks from entering Burnaby marine terminal
The group calls itself 'the Justin Trudeau Brigade' and says its goal is to create delays for Kinder Morgan
A group of protesters calling themselves the "Justin Trudeau Brigade" gathered Thursday morning outside the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby.
They have blocked vehicle access to the terminal with the goal of delaying construction on the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project.
"If there are more delays, the investors will realize this is a bad investment and they'll take their money elsewhere, they'll invest their money in something less dangerous, that's less likely to fail, " said protestor David Mivasair.
"This is going to fail. We're going to stay here a while."
At least two trucks turned away at the site Thursday morning because of the protest.
