2022-02-19 20:45 PST

Surrey RCMP is updating the public on the current situation at the Pacific Highway Border Crossing.

As of 8 pm on February 19, 2022, the vast majority of protesters and vehicles have now departed the area. A small group of protesters remain at the corner of 176 Street and 8th Avenue, on the sidewalk.

Traffic is now moving on 176 Street in all directions and the public can access the border crossing. Vehicle road checks will remain in place.

Police will be maintaining a large presence throughout the evening, with a continual assessment of the situation.

Investigations remain underway into unlawful activity earlier in the day. This includes reports of intimidation and alleged assault against members of the media (see previous news release).

It’s been a very busy day for our teams on the ground, and those supporting operations from behind the scenes, says Sgt Elenore Sturko. Our work here is not done though, and the public can expect a continued police presence in the days and nights ahead.
