Protesters toss 250 rubber ducks onto TMX pipeline site

About 250 rubber ducks were scattered across a TMX pipeline construction site in Burnaby.

Trans Mountain workers were met with a squeaky surprise the morning of Nov. 28, as they found about 250 rubber ducks strewn across a pipeline worksite in Burnaby.

The environmentalist group Protect the Planet posted a video of construction workers picking up the “secondhand rubber ducks” at the construction site at Government Road.

Protect the Planet said in a news release it opposes the pipeline expansion project, adding “the more interruptions take place, especially interruptions that are clearly the work of opposed residents, the riskier the investment becomes and the more investors will pull out.”

Trans Mountain said the rubber ducks were thrown over the security fence in the morning.

“Workers cleaned up the rubber ducks and there was no impact to construction,” Trans Mountain told the NOW in an emailed statement.
