Climbers face mischief charges once on the ground – Police say
July 19, 2018 (EnergySpotlight) – Surprise, surprise, protesters feel emboldened by lack-of-action taken against their protests in BC, have now moved their new target to Montreal’s Olympic Stadium.
Our activists are climbing the highest inclined tower in the world at a critical moment to fight climate change to send a bold message to the Canadian PM @JustinTrudeau and banks #stopTMX #stoppipelines pic.twitter.com/F8ZnNfcOZM

As we wrote last week, the lack of a firm stance on Protesters Illegal actions from the Prime Ministers Office will result in the growing number of adventure seekers taking on bigger and bigger stunts.
Police cordoned off the area below, and tourists and employees were not allowed in and around the stadium.
Montreal police spokeswoman Caroline Chevrefils said the Greenpeace members would be arrested. For what? – “PUBLIC MISCHIEF once they were back on the ground.”
The Trans Mountain protests are now emboldened to protest in Montreal
The group hanging from the Ironworker memorial bridge in Vancouver was just the beginning of the stunts to come, I’m sure.
According to the Vancouver Sun – EVEN BURNABY B.C. is taking a tougher stance by FINALLY trying to get rid of the shanty-town of protest buildings
There has actually been a decrease in arrests AT THE SITE due to the fact that penalties have gotten steeper. Penalties could include a $5,000 fine and seven to 14 days in jail.
However, that’s only AT the Trans Mountain Site itself… Greenpeace is making sure they’re NO WHERE NEAR that… and in MONTREAL, with a slap-on-the-wrist penalty awaits…
Now, in my opinion, I think these stunts are losing credibility with the public on what SHOULD be a valid argument.
Even people in Alberta think that Ottawa BUYING The Trans Mountain Pipeline outright was done in haste, and should be legitimately reviewed.
But of course that’s not the point. I don’t think it ever was for these “environmentalists”.
Canada has some tough questions to debate on our environment.. hanging from things isn’t the way to correct them.
