PRINCE GEORGE— Fourteen people were charged in conjunction with a blockade on the Morice River Road at the Gidimt’en checkpoint January 7, 2019.  

The protest centred around Coastal Gas Link's access to Wet’suwet’en territory further down the road to begin making way for living quarters for those working on the TransCanada pipeline.  

The group appeared in court in Prince George today (April 15) and all charges were dropped based on the assessment by the B.C. Prosecution Services, as there isn't enough evidence to proceed criminally.
