The anti old-groth logging group Save Old Growth says its supporters are blocking all lanes of Grandview Highway at Boundary Road in Vancouver Monday.
It says one person is on top of a tall ladder and another person has glued their hand to the roadway.
They say 80 of their supporters have been arrested in a series of similar blockades on Highway 1 on the North Shore and in Burnaby, Victoria and Revelstoke since January.
The group aims to force the provincial government to ban all logging of old-growth trees, not all logging in general.

On its website, Save Old Growth said the blockades are “part of an ongoing escalation to demand an end to old-growth logging.” Arrests are to be expected.
