File # 2020-41295
On September 30, 2020, shortly after 8:30 a.m., Hope RCMP responded to a report of a woman who parked her vehicle in a manner that prevented workers from conducting operations at a Trans Mountain worksite off Highway 5 near Falls Lake Road.
Private security staff on site informed the woman that her actions constituted a breach of a Supreme Court injunction and provided her a copy of the court order.
Upon police attendance, the woman declined an opportunity to leave and was arrested. The 47-year-old woman from Merritt was released from custody on scene.
RCMP are forwarding all circumstances of the investigation in a report to the BC Prosecution Service for their assessment of criminal charges.
The RCMP remind citizens that they have the right to lawful, peaceful and safe protest and the companies have a right to complete their work. RCMP are working hard at ensuring that these rights are respected and everyone is kept safe.
