Ninety-nine young environmental activists achieved their goal on Parliament Hill on Monday by carrying out acts of civil disobedience. The boisterous group climbed over restricted-area police barricades near the Peace Tower.
"Climate Leaders Don't Build Pipelines," said a giant banner.
Protesting the possible construction of the Alberta-to-B.C. Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline, the 99 were arrested and taken to a police station. They were issued citations and told not to appear on Parliament Hill for three months.
None of those arrested saw the dark and damp insides of a jail cell. They will not have criminal records.
