RCMP already has suspects in pipeline bombing

Premier Campbell is calling the bombings of a natural gas pipeline near Dawson Creek "unnacceptable."

Campbell issued a statement earlier today saying that those behind the bombings on the EnCana pipeline will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Meanwhile, RCMP say they already have some suspects in mind. Sgt. Tim Shields says the force is currently investigating a local group who have been fighting the expansion of EnCana pipelines in the area.

However, Dawson Creek City Councillor Paul Gevatkoff says that there’s no support in his city for this sort of behaviour.


The bombings come after a letter telling the company to leave the area was received at some local media outlets.
