Two high-profile Vancouverites were led off to jail on Wednesday, sentenced to seven days in jail for defying an injunction by protesting at a Kinder Morgan property in Burnaby on June 30.

Jean Swanson, a candidate for Vancouver city council, and Susan Lambert, a former president of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, were among seven people who appeared before Justice Kenneth Affleck of the B.C. Supreme Court.

All seven pleaded guilty to contempt of court for blocking construction, were sentenced to seven days behind bars and were taken straight to jail.
