Dryland sort blockaded

  • Mar. 22, 2005 5:00 a.m.

More than 30 people blockaded the Queen Charlotte dryland sort this morning (March 22), starting at sunrise.
Despite the early morning chill, people were in a good mood, laughing and talking. “Enough is enough” read one of the handpainted signs. Large, red Haida Nation flags, along with the cars’ four-way flashers and safety vests made for a striking scene, as the early morning sunshine streamed through smoke from a campfire.
Although regular vehicles were let through, two logging company pickups were turned around and at least one did a U-turn before even approaching the line of people.
