The worm has turned - for now. Pipeline giant, Kinder Morgan was in court today only to be sent packing. The court refused an application to extend the company's injunction against protesters at the two drilling sites on Burnaby Mountain. That means the company has to be off the mountain by December 1st.
Better yet, due to errors in the enforcement of the company's injunction, the judge threw out all civil contempt charges laid so far.
Among those who stood up to defy Kinder Morgan and be arrested was Grand Chief Stewart Philip of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs.
"If push comes to shove, " Phillip said, "I'd be arrested in solidarity."
He spoke about how the future of his 15 grandchildren are at stake.
"I will once again be arrested. This is not the first time," he said.
"It is a matter of principle."
