Ontario Provincial Police remove blockade on CN Rail tracks, arrest demonstrators


    Residents of the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory and their supporters had been camped near the line close to Belleville, Ont. for almost three weeks in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs who oppose a natural gas pipeline through the nation’s lands in B.C. CN Rail uses the tracks to transport travellers and freight, as does Via Rail for passenger trains through Ottawa. The OPP did not disclose to reporters, who were kept back from the site, how many protestors it had detained or whether they faced charges. (APTN News, CBC News)
