Gasoline traps and 'fuel-soaked rags' indicate possible criminal attack against GasLink pipeline

Gasoline traps indicate possible eco-terrorist attack against GasLink pipeline

The RCMP has launched a criminal investigation after finding “bags full of fuel-soaked rags” along with jugs of gasoline, diesel, oil and kindling on a service road near a Coastal GasLink pipeline workcamp.

Coastal GasLink is a proposed natural gas pipeline set to be built in British Columbia. Recently, GasLink has been blockaded by the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs despite the approval of 20 local elected First Nations councils.

At the time of this writing, it is unknown if the alleged criminals were aware of the irony of using fuel to sabotage a pipeline.
