Three Wet’suwet’en hereditary chief supporters arrested at CP Rail blockade outside Chase, B.C.

Three people have been arrested for blockading a Canadian Pacific Rail line near Chase, B.C., according to the Chase RCMP.

Protesters who say they support Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs in the dispute over a contentious northern B.C. gas pipeline descended on the rail line where it traverses the Neskonlith Indian Band late Monday.

RCMP say officers with the CP Rail Police Service, which has jurisdiction over the tracks, were called to enforce an injunction on Tuesday.

CP has not commented.

Mounties say there were about two dozen people participating in the blockade.
