VANCOUVER—Over 100 First Nations and environmental supporters on canoes, kayaks, boats and rhibs formed a flotilla in front of the Trans Mountain Terminal in Burnaby on Saturday.

More than 70 watercrafts paddled from Cates Park beach in North Vancouver to the Trans Mountain Westridge Marine Terminal across the water, stopping at the terminal fence for Indigenous elders to hold a water ceremony with drumming, singing and prayer.

An Indigenous political activist was briefly detained Saturday following a Trans Mountain pipeline protest in British Columbia's North Thompson Provincial Park on Saturday.

Kanahus Manuel, a spokesperson for the activist group Tiny House Warriors, was arrested by the RCMP after allegedly defying an eviction order from the BC Parks service that was delivered on Thursday.

If Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion project proceeds, the land, resources, and rights of more than 130 Indigenous communities and groups from Alberta’s oilsands to British Columbia’s coast could be affected.

July 9, 2018 - Just imagine if a consortium of First Nations owned a sizable stake in the Trans Mountain pipeline and were determined to push it through because it would put more money in the hands of Indigenous people.

There is a plan afoot to do exactly that and later this month First Nations leaders will meet in Vancouver to advance the idea.

It’s a bold move but it would also give some First Nations the kind of control over resource projects in their own backyards they have long dreamed of.

Of course, not all First Nations would be happy.

Several demonstrators were taken away in police boats as Mounties removed the activists suspended in air underneath the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge, where they have been blocking oil tanker traffic since early Tuesday morning.

A statement from activist group Protect the Inlet said Will George, who spoke to CTV News from his precarious position the day before, was among those taken into custody after dangling from the bridge for about 36 hours.
