They were each sentenced to 25 hours of community service.

They have done their time and remain joyfully unrepentant.

The crown, asking for jail time for pipeline protesters, said, "we must deter seniors," noting that over 40% of people arrested are seniors.  He went on to say that the folks being arrested are a "particularly sinister challenge to the court's authority."

We were delighted to be called "sinister".  And so the arrestees - Lisa, Julia, Gregory and Peter - joined forces with protestors MaryAnne Pare, John Allen, Paul Petrie and Monica Petrie to form the Sinister Seniors.  We have created spoken word performances, made an appearance at the Zoo Islander fashion show, held events, and we continue to protest, mobilize, and strategize to save our Salish Sea and the rest of our beautiful planet for future generations.
