On October 5, 2021 the RCMP responded to a complaint that a group of individuals were blocking industry workers from accessing the forestry roads in the Fairy Creek Watershed area.

Police arrested one individual for mischief and obstruction as they refused to let industry through and didn’t comply with police direction. They were transported to Lake Cowichan RCMP Detachment, processed and released on conditions.

On October 6, 2021 the individual arrested the day before was located again within the area and in breach of their conditions. They were arrested again and transported to Lake Cowichan RCMP Detachment to be processed for the additional charges and will be released with a future court date.

The RCMP will continue to have additional resources in the area to support the local police of jurisdiction and respond to any complaints.
