Members of the Gidimt’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation had set up a camp to control access to a pipeline project that runs across their territory.

RCMP say they made 14 arrests on Monday after it became obvious that a resolution between the demonstrators and TransCanada, the pipeline company, could not be reached.

The solidarity rally will take place at 4 p.m. in Gore Park.
