In the coming weeks, six of us face jail time for peacefully protesting the construction of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project (TMX) near the Brunette River in Burnaby. We are members of a multi-faith prayer circle and residents of Burnaby and Vancouver.

 

In mid-February, we will be appearing in B.C. Supreme Court to face charges of “criminal contempt of court.”

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Canada’s public safety minister said Monday that U.S. officials should stay out of his country’s domestic affairs, joining other Canadian leaders in pushing back against prominent Republicans who offered support for the protests of COVID-19 restrictions that have besieged downtown Ottawa for more than a week.

All that is at stake here is our freedom. Not a juvenile notion of freedom — but freedom from the tyranny of hatred.

Perhaps the most disturbing thing about the ongoing events in Ottawa is not the lawlessness but the failure of law enforcement to police it.

In the Before Times…

Two years ago, in February 2020, I bundled up and traveled to Ottawa to meet with MPs to discuss the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project (TMX). Little did I know that it would be my last work trip for a long time.
