Mounties say four more anti-pipeline protesters, including three seniors, were arrested outside a Kinder Morgan work site in Burnaby, B.C. Friday.

According to police, the demonstrators were taken into custody in the 7000 block of Bayview Drive after allegedly breaching a court-ordered injunction designed to stop pipeline opponents from impeding access to the Trans Mountain facility.

Karen Savage, an award-winning investigative reporter, did not expect to be arrested as she covered Energy Transfer Partners’ controversial construction of the Bayou Bridge pipeline through Louisiana's Atchafalaya Basin, a river swamp bigger than the Florida Everglades.

“We were on land that the pipeline company doesn’t even claim to have,” she said, adding that she had permission in writing from the property owner to be there. “I didn’t think there was really any risk at all.”

As one of the three founders of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, I have a keen interest in preventing environmental degradation, because I know that human health —my over-riding professional focus — is entirely dependent on healthy ecosystems.

Dozens of kilometres from where a protest camp has been set up, Enbridge revelled in the construction of its massive and controversial pipeline replacement project in Manitoba.

On Thursday, Enbridge invited reporters and politicians, including federal Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi, to a site near Morden to show off the construction of its line which its punches its way through the province this summer.
