Belleville (Ontario), Feb 6 (Canadian-Media): Delaying of passenger trains on Thursday in southern Ontario was caused by blocking rail lines by a small group from the Tyendinaga Mohawk territory to support Wet'suwet'en camps set up to stop a natural gas pipeline in B.C., media reports said.

Ontario provincial liaison team was meeting with the group from Tyendinaga, said
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).
The protest group gathered around the tracks in support of the Wet'suwet'en anti-pipeline camps, said OPP Sgt. Carolle Dionne.
A court injunction against people blocking the Coastal Gaslink project was enforced on them by RCMP on Thursday and several arrests were made.
"Our members from the provincial liaison team are working with them to provide some alternative plans if they want to get their message across in support of the Wet'suwet'en issue that is lawful and peaceful," said Dionne.
