Update #18 on police enforcement of injunction order in Fairy Creek Watershed

B.C., Lake Cowichan

2021-06-07 19:09 PDT

There was no planned or scheduled enforcement of the BC Supreme Court injunction order in the Fairy Creek Watershed area yesterday on Sunday June 6, 2021. Therefore, no persons were arrested.

Today, on June 7, 2021, police enforcement continued at an encampment area near Port Renfrew, where officers have been primarily focussing their efforts for the past several days. During the course of the day, 11 persons were arrested for breaching the injunction (civil contempt of court) and 2 for obstruction.

All arrested persons were transported to the Lake Cowichan RCMP Detachment for processing.

Since enforcement began, the RCMP have now arrested 185 individuals; at least 9 of whom were previously arrested. A full breakdown of how many were arrested for breaching the injunction and for obstruction is still pending.

All news releases on the Fairy Creek Watershed police enforcement issued to date can be found on the Lake Cowichan RCMP Detachment website.
