Anti old-growth logging protesters block major road in Vancouver Easter Monday morning – BC

The anti old-groth logging group Save Old Growth says its supporters are blocking all lanes of Grandview Highway at Boundary Road in Vancouver Monday.

It says one person is on top of a tall ladder and another person has glued their hand to the roadway.

They say 80 of their supporters have been arrested in a series of similar blockades on Highway 1 on the North Shore and in Burnaby, Victoria and Revelstoke since January.

The group aims to force the provincial government to ban all logging of old-growth trees, not all logging in general.
