Despite previously not seeming to know where B.C. is on a map, Greenpeace Canada found Vancouver this morning and decided to pull a stunt.
That stunt was an attempt to try to stop a tankers from crossing under the bridge, leaving the Trans Mountain terminal in Burnaby. 12 protesters hung from the underside of the bridge.
The VPD said in a release that it begun just before 7:30am, and that the Marine Unit is currently on scene assessing the situation.
Somehow traffic on the bridge was not affected.
It's unknown how they were able to scale the bridge as there are anti-suicide barriers installed throughout.
We have calls in with Burnaby RCMP, the VPD and Greenpeace and will provide more information as we receive it.
