Victoria judge approves an injunction, prevents anti-pipeline protesters from blocking access to B.C.'s legislature

A Victoria judge has approved an injunction preventing anti-pipeline protesters from blocking access to B.C.'s legislature.

The ruling comes as Victoria police anticipate traffic and other disruptions tomorrow when anti-pipeline protesters are expected to expand demonstrations.

Police say they've heard protesters are planning to blockade public buildings in the provincial capital, just days after hundreds blocked the entrance to the legislature when the spring session kicked off inside.

Speaker Darryl Plecas made the application and a B.C. Supreme Court judge granted the order, authorizing police to arrest and remove people blocking legislature entrances.
