As you've no doubt seen on social media, Burnaby RCMP today (November 20) moved in to arrest more than a dozen people protesting the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project on Burnaby Mountain.
Vancouver photographer Jackie Dives was on hand to capture these dramatic photographs.
In the photos, you'll see protester Marija Brzev locked to a cement block with her mom watching over her, and David Suzuki's grandson Tamo Campos being led away by police.

Why are those cops dressed up like they're in the army?

LOL and the protestors were yelling at Kinder Morgan workers to "get a real job"? How are you able to spend days at protest camps if you have a "real job"?

We just sit back and watch you Vancouverites with a smile on our face. Its pure comedy.
So many of you are against oil yes how many of you drive cars daily to work. Do you even consider taking the bus. You live in one of the most economically privileged cities in the world. Guess what, you use more energy than most the world.
Yes you talk about the greedy rich? You do realize your city is not separated from the rest of the economy or runs of hemp, do you?
Yes, the greedy rich are just twidling their fingers going " Muahahha, all the oil money"
or how about the employment of over 200,000 Canadians is directly linked with oil and gas production and the secondary limits are far reaching.
People in Vancouver live in multi million dollar homes and want to shut the down the economy. Its hilarious

Thanks for the comment, but what makes you think that retired people, shift workers, seasonal workers, homemakers, students, and, gasp, even the unemployed and unemployable aren't concerned enough about the issue to put in some time at this protest?

Thank you, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, for seizing the opportunity, as an empowered body of trust and authority, to exercise your sound, informed judgement for the sake of the speaking public's well-being. Your actions were clearly required in order to keep the peace, and your ability to turn a blind eye to crime couldn't be more just.
Now we can be traditionally raped in autocratic silence.
