1. Since September, the Burnaby Mountain Caretakers, led by indigenous activists, have been blocking survey work on Burnaby Mountain by Texas based pipeline company Kinder Morgan. On Friday, Nov. 15, Kinder Morgan obtained a court order to have the land defenders removed from the site. This video documents their response.

    Although police made no move to arrest any of the demonstrators during the rally, they have the power to enforce the injunction at any time. Three days later, on Thursday, Nov. 20, RCMP moved into the encampment to clear the way for Kinder Morgan. Stay tuned for another video report from the injunction enforcement very soon.

Video reports from the front lines and the courthouses as Texas-based pipeline company Kinder Morgan tries to ram their controversial Trans-Mountain pipeline right through the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area, against the wishes of Burnaby residents and local First Nations, whose unceded lands the pipeline would cross.

The Burnaby Mountain Caretakers have been blocking the company's work area on Burnaby Mountain since early September. Meanwhile, the city of Burnaby is battling Kinder Morgan in court over who has jurisdiction over pipeline projects—the Federal government or the municipality.

Thus far, the National Energy Board and the Supreme Court have sided with Kinder Morgan. On Friday, Nov. 14, 2014, an injunction came down against the demonstrators, empowering the RCMP to remove anyone who attempts to impede or obstruct Kinder Morgan's work.

But the Caretakers have not backed down and a heated battle over who has the rights to the land and the water will go through has begun.
