VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The battle over the TransMountain pipeline has ramped up again.
This time, it’s thanks to a video posted online showing a confrontation between a demonstrator and an RCMP officer near the protest site on Burnaby Mountain.
While those on one side of the argument will suggest it shows a demonstrator getting in the way of a police officer doing his job, others will claim it’s an example of police brutality.
The man involved in the clash is described as an “indigenous land defender.”
Opponents of the pipeline say Kinder Morgan doesn’t have the consent of First Nations
