Police act on court order

Update: February 10, 2020 

On Monday morning, police were compelled to act on a BC Supreme Court order, in response to a request from the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, to restore access to the Vancouver ports.

The injunction was granted to the Port on Sunday afternoon by a BC Supreme Court Justice and protestors were made aware of it by the Port on Sunday evening.

A number of protestors refused to abide by the court order. So far, 33 arrests have been made. Protestors received several requests from police to clear the intersection and then warnings prior to being detained.

Traffic in the area is still impacted this morning as police remove debris from the road.
