Trucker protests: Traffic moving again at BC border after 12 protesters arrested

Global News in Canada shows that twelve people were arrested on Monday at a truckers' protest blocking the Pacific Highway border crossing in Surrey, B.C., one of the various demonstrations that had sprung up across the country since the so-called "Freedom Convoy" drove into Ottawa on Jan. 29.

It was the biggest crackdown at the border crossing since the protest against COVID-19 measures began there last week. Over the weekend, some drivers drove their trucks over a median, breaching a police blockade and leading to four people being taken into custody. Monday's arrests bring that total to 16. 

As Grace Ke reports, traffic is moving again but police will remain at the scene.
