    > Dozens of Ontario Provincial Police officers have cleared Mohawk protesters from their camp along an Ontario railway line, enforcing a court injunction to end a weeks-long blockade that has paralyzed a large portion of Eastern Canada's cargo and passenger rail traffic.

    > The Tyendinaga protest near Belleville, Ont., began on Feb. 6 in support of five Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs who oppose the passage of the $6.6-billion Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline through their traditional territory in Northern British Columbia.

    > Police had been reluctant to move in and enforce the injunction obtained by CN, saying that the police service's primary goal was "Preserving the peace." The protesters had demanded the RCMP leave the Wet'suwet'en territory in B.C. The protesters broadcast the standoff from the Real Peoples Media Facebook page.
