Burnaby Now November 21 2014

TRANSCRIPT

  • It was a tense Thursday morning onBurnaby Mountain, as RCMP arrested atleast a dozen anti-pipeline protesters.

    Police cordoned off sections ofCentennial Way, where protesters set upa barricaded camp, and anyone caughtinside the yellow tape was subject toarrest.

    The people were arrested for defyinga B.C. Supreme Court injunction ban-ning the protesters from interfering withKinder Morgans survey work for a newpipeline route. Some have been releasedalready.

    Its a very emotional event, and Irespect the people who have decided tocommit civil disobedience, said AlanDutton fromBurnabyResidentsOpposingKinder Morgan Expansion. Dutton wasalso one of the five protesters namedin the court injunction. Weve advisedpeople to respect the law and allow thecourt process to continue to see what theresolution will be.

    Dutton said it will be difficult forpolice to clear the area as more peopleconvene on the mountain.

    There are a lot of people coming intothis area, and the longer it takes, the morepeople are going to be here and the morepeaceful it will become because there aremore people to witness whats going on,Dutton said. I anticipate this is going tocontinue, and this is going to be a long,long struggle.

    Burnaby resident Ruth Walmsley sleptin the park overnight and was on thescene when a large number of police offi-cers showed up and read the injunction tothose in the camp area.

    A number of protesters locked arms

    and refused to get off of the premises,she told the NOW.

    Police were also dealing with protest-ers at a clearing in the woods at anoth-er spot where Kinder Morgan needs todrill for soil samples. Vancouver residentAdam Bognar was one of three peoplewho camped overnight in the clearing,which is about a five-minute hike fromCentennial Way

    There have been no arrests made yet(in the woods), he told the NOW.

    Police arrived as Bognar and two oth-

    ers were waking up, still in their sleepingbags.

    They came in, in a line, and set up aperimeter and made us move outside ofit to not be arrested, Bognar said. Theysaid this is in the injunction perimeter, since then its grown three times that size,and its just been on (a) whim.

    At press time, Bognar was outsidethe cordoned-off area, documenting thescene. He also reported that one manchained his neck to a tree, about 25 feetfrom the ground, and two police officers

    were up the tree with bolt cutters tryingto remove him. The RCMPs aerial extrac-tion team removed the man and arrestedhim.

    One of the more intense and emotionalmoments was when Clarrisa Antone fromthe Squamish Indian Band arrived onthe scene singing and drumming. As thecrowd began to sing along with her, shemarched right under the yellow policetape into the protesters camp as RCMP

    The film industry has changed a lot forbetter and for worse in the last four decades.Just ask Paul Pincott.

    The longtime owner of Can Am Importiqueis parting with hundreds of film props thathes accumulated over 38 years. Everythingfrom a Wheel of Fortune wheel to a statue ofAbraham Lincoln to a massive portrait of KimJong-il will be going up for auction over thecourse of two days.

    Im pretty heartbroken, said Pincott. Idont want to close, but unfortunately, I lost atenant a little over two years ago.

    Pincott noted hes been paying for theentirety of his large North Burnaby ware-house, despite a lengthy search for someonewith whom to share the building. He said a

    few prospective tenants fell through, and hejust cant afford to keep the prop rental busi-ness going.

    Its just killing me, the rent its so highhere, and the film industry is just going upand down like a yo-yo, he said. It just got tothe point where it was an economic hardshipand necessity to shut it down.

    The warehouse is packed with all kinds ofitems: totem poles, treasure chests, bar stools,outdated televisions and oversized Christmasornaments fit for Paul Bunyan. However,some items arent for sale, as theyve beencommitted to some productions.

    Able Auctions will be on site this Thursdayand Friday to sell off as many items as pos-sible. Those who cant make it to the live auc-tion can register at the auction houses websiteand bid online.

    Out of everything hes collected over his

    career, Pincott said the item hell miss themost is the coffin used by Ashley Judd in the1999 thriller Double Jeopardy.

    Ive always said over the years, if I evershut this place down, Im going down withAshley Judd in that coffin, he said with achuckle. But its going in the auction withor without me.

    Nonetheless, Pincott said it will be goodfor him to take some time off and recharge hisbatteries. But dont think hes out of the indus-try for good in the new year, hes going tostart seriously looking for an investor to stayin film.

    Im going to absolutely miss the business its all I know and its all Ive done, he said.Im really hoping I can find someone withsimilar interests and start something up in thenear future.

    But for now, Ive got to let it go.

    The Burnaby ChristmasBureaus pancake breakfast fund-raiser is becoming a yearly tradi-tion in the city.

    The third annual BurnabyChristmas Angel Breakfast andToy Drive takes place Tuesday,Nov. 25 at the Hilton VancouverMetrotown.

    This is quickly becoming anannual tradition, part of the cel-

    ebration of families for the holi-days, said Stephen DSouza,executive director at BurnabyCommunity Services, which facil-itates the bureau.

    From 6 to 10 a.m., people canbring a new, unwrapped gift or

    cash in exchange for a pancakebreakfast, courtesy of the Burnabyfirefighters. There is also a take-away continental breakfast optionfor people who may be in a hurryand on their way to work.

    The event featured entertainers Jim Byrnes and AJWoodworth. The toys and cash go towards the BurnabyChristmas Bureau, which makes sure local, low-incomefamilies have enough food and gifts for the holidays.

    Burnaby firefighters, Scotiabank and a number of dif-ferent sponsors started the pancake breakfast three yearsago, DSouza said. Last years event drew hundreds ofattendees and pulled in $5,000 and a truckload of toys.

    But thats not the only Christmas Bureau event onNov. 25. Later that evening, at the same location, BurnabyCommunity Services is hosting Fill A Stocking, Fulfill AWish, a fundraiser with food, auction items and entertain-ment, from 6 to 10 p.m.

    Its really just an opportunity for the community tocome together in a different way, DSouza said. Its away to really start off the holiday season.

    The Hilton Vancouver Metrotown is at 6083 McKayAve.

    looked on. Bypress timeThursday, onlyAntoneand another indigenous woman were allowedto stay inside the camp, where a sacred fireis burning.

    Theres been a call out for more protestersto convene on the mountain, and many morearrived Thursday morning, as word spread ofthe arrests. People from the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish First Nations werereportedly on their way at press time, althoughthis is not confirmed.

    Kinder Morgan had no comments or state-ment formedia Thursdaymorning and referredthe NOW to the RCMP. Theres still no wordas to when the company will resume work,although the plan is for police to secure thearea so company crews can finish the surveysafely.

    A spokesperson for the protesters said 12were arrested and six were already released.

    Burnaby RCMP Staff Sgt.-Major John Buisput the figure at 14, but the number is fluid,

    because some protesters are being released ifthey agree to appear in court and not return tothe protest site. Seven have been released.

    We will secure the site, he told the NOW.As for the remaining women inside the

    camp, Buis said RCMP were working on that.Im not sure how thats going to play out.

    All the people have to move eventually, and weare negotiating that now with them, he said,adding the discussion centres around possiblymoving the fire.

    Its still not clear who will remove the pro-testers barricaded camp from the mountain.

    Thats something being discussed, saidAli Hounsell, a spokesperson for the TransMountain expansion project. Hounsell saidthere was no further information to report.Kinder Morgan is waiting for police to makethe area safe for the companys survey crews.

    Our crews are on standby ready to work,she added.
