Five protesters blocking work on Line 9 pipeline arrested: Police

  • Print

INNERKIP, Ont. - The Ontario Provincial Police say they've arrested five protesters at an Enbridge pipeline.

Two protesters attached themselves to concrete blocks on the Line 9 pipeline near Woodstock to try to stop construction work.

Police say the pair have been arrested plus three others and charges are pending.

The protest group Dam Line 9 Blockade says other three protesters were providing support to the pair who were trying to block work on the pipeline.

A spokesman for the protest group, Dan Kellar, said protesters have come from all over southern Ontario, and have been blockading the pipeline for six days.

The demonstration prompted Enbridge to get a court injunction and it was served Sunday.

Enbridge plans to reverse the flow of oil and increase the pipe’s capacity, but opponents argue the pipeline puts the environment at risk and that there has been little consultation with aboriginal communities.
