The RCMP arrested 12 people on Burnaby Mountain this morning and charged them with civil contempt. They were there protesting against the 890,000 barrels per day Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline. At this hour, at least eight of those charged have been released and the others are being processed. Their court date will reportedly be in January.
