Vocal opponents of the Trans Mountain expansion chose an eye-catching way to make a statement at the worksite on February 25, 2022, in Burnaby.

Vocal opponents of the Trans Mountain expansion chose an eye-catching way to make a statement at the site of the project's construction site Friday (Feb. 25) afternoon. 

Sporting full Tyrannosaurus Rex costumes, several protestors danced and ran around the construction site of the Trans Mountain Expansion in Burnaby near the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Gaglardi Way.   

The demonstrators also stood in the middle of the road blocking traffic from driving through the area. Some people also held signs that spelled out their opposition to the project and asked the company to "stop work" on the $21.4 billion construction.

The protest kicked off at noon and was slated to continue until 2 p.m. Organizers noted that the worksite is located only 100 metres from Burnaby Secondary School and asked attendees to "make some noise" to protect local youth. 

Several locals took to social media to share photos and videos of the protest.
