Anti-Trans Mountain protesters have rappelled from Vancouver's Ironworkers Memorial Bridge as part of an aerial blockade of oil-tanker traffic.
They had been hanging from the bridge for 36 hours, creating an "aerial blockade" against oil tanker movements.
Police have removed all of the pipeline opponents who had been suspended from the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge for almost a day-and-a-half.
"Public safety is the priority, both for the protesters and the police", the Mounties said in a tweet. The event will begin at 12 p.m. and take place at 525 North Skeena St.in Vancouver.
"I'm feeling frustrated that this state is continuing to uphold the travel of oil tankers and continuing to allow the travel of these super tankers through such a handsome part of the world", she says.
"It's in my blood to protect this water and I won't stand down".
"Officers from the VPD's Marine Unit are on scene assessing the situation", said Cost.
Anti-Trans Mountain pipeline activists hang from the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge in North Vancouver, B.C. on July 3, 2018.
Later, they wrote that they were in the process of removing them, but that the work was "tedious and slow".

A spokesperson from Kinder Morgan said the tanker filled up with crude oil at the Westridge Marine Terminal and is "waiting for suitable conditions at its Port of Vancouver designated mooring location". "I will do whatever it takes to protect the water and my family and your family", he said.
"Our future hangs in the balance if we don't stop fossil fuel extraction, as does the health of these precious waterways, and the communities and wildlife depending on them", said Joanna Kerr, executive director of Greenpeace Canada, in a press release.
Greenpeace Canada says a protest that saw a dozen protesters dangling from a Vancouver bridge to block a tanker carrying crude oil from the Trans Mountain pipeline ended Wednesday night. Anchored in the Burrard Inlet not far from the bridge is an oil tanker named the Serene Sea.
Will George was among those arrested on Wednesday after occupying the bridge for more than 35 hours, said Kwekwecnewtxw - Protect The Inlet, a group formed to oppose the Trans Mountain expansion.
"We respect the right to peacefully demonstrate and there are many ways to express opinions in a safe and lawful manner", the company said.
"There are no impacts to our operations at this time as there are no vessels scheduled to arrive at or depart Westridge Marine Terminal this morning", they said.
According to the Pacific Pilotage Authority, a trio of ships are set to move under the Second Narrows today: the Global Unity is scheduled to move from an English Bay moorage to Kinder Morgan at 10 a.m., the Maersk Bering from a moorage east of the bridge to the Strait of Juan de Fuca at 3 p.m., and the Nord Supreme from west of the bridge to Suncor's terminal at 3 p.m.
The Suncor Burrard Terminal is a holding facility for finished petroleum products.
"Part of civil disobedience is the open and forthright breaking of certain laws in order to uphold higher morals and higher laws", Greenpeace spokesperson Alex Speers-Roesch said, watching from a distance as the RCMP moved in.
