Commuters are being notified that a blockade is underway on a bridge on the Burnaby-Vancouver border.
On Monday, two blockades of the freeway will take place in Vancouver during the morning rush hour. One on the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge and one on the freeway leading directly to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal in West Vancouver.
“Superglue will be used to stop the traffic and arrests are expected, raising our current number to over 40 arrests so far in the campaign,” reads a statement from the Save Old Growth campaign. “This is the final act of the first iteration of the campaign, with a break in February and March to recruit, train and set up more block teams, so further disruption will be made later in the spring. Actions begin again on March 21 with a level of arrests and disturbances in the city and province, which will be unprecedented in British Columbia. “
Earlier this month, several people were arrested for blocking Highway 1 exits in Burnaby at Willingdon Avenue.
