Wet’suwet’en Nation supporters gather at Confederation Bridge

Demonstrators have gathered on the P.E.I. side of the Confederation Bridge on Sunday in a show of support for the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs.

Sporting flags and signs, demonstrators set up on the median at the road leading towards the bridge.

Unlike actions in other provinces where blockades have stalled traffic, rail service and port operations, there have been no efforts to shut down Confederation Bridge — the only fixed link between Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. Protesters indicated that at this time, they are planning to slow traffic rather than block it entirely.

Traffic was still flowing across the bridge in both directions as of 3 p.m. AT.

Photos posted on Facebook show multiple RCMP vehicles on the scene. The Mounties told Global News that their presence at the demonstration has been to ensure traffic flow.
