CN Rail has obtained a court injunction to end a demonstration by members of the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory that’s halted rail traffic between Toronto and both Ottawa and Montreal for three days, according to a copy of the judgment obtained by CBC News.
The injunction, which does not name any individual, was issued by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Toronto on Friday.
It forbids any continued interference with the rail line under the threat of arrest, and was served to demonstrators by CN police Saturday afternoon.
Members of the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory have been protesting along the rail lines that cut along the territory’s border near Belleville, Ont. — located between Ottawa and Toronto — in support of the Wet’suwet’en Nation in British Columbia.
Tensions continue to rise between RCMP and Wet’suwet’en amid pipeline dispute
The protesters have said they will stop train traffic until the RCMP leave Wet’suwet’en territory, where a recent court injunction ordered protesters to leave and clear the way for work on the Coastal GasLink pipeline.
