Weapons seizure, charges laid at Coutts border crossing protest brings end to blockade

Global News in Canada shows that protesters had vowed to continue blocking the Canada-U.S. border crossing at Coutts, Alta., until COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, but Tuesday morning the blockade came to an end.

Organizers say they agreed to "move out" after police seized a cache of weapons and ammunition and made several arrests.  13 people were arrested, most face charges of mischief and weapon possession. At least 3 have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

An investigation is underway into who brought the weapons and their reason for doing so. Heather Yourex-West reports.
