PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. -- RCMP arrested two more people on Monday morning for blocking construction on the Coastal GasLink Pipeline near Houston.

Cpl. Madonna Saunderson says patrols on the Morice Forest Service Road near the 44 kilometre mark came upon a new blockade in the form of a vehicle that had been placed across the road.

There were also three individuals dressed in camouflage. A fire was also lit on the road near a bridge.

One individual left, but the other two remained and were arrested for contempt of a court order and mischief. Both individuals have been released from custody pending future court appearances.

A total of 31 people have now been arrested this month for blocking construction of the pipeline.
