Surrey RCMP is providing an update on the situation near the Pacific Highway Border Crossing as of Monday February 14, 2022.

At this time, the border is open however; protest activity in the area has made it necessary to divert vehicle traffic to alternate border crossings. Pedestrians are also strongly encouraged to use alternate routes.

Currently, there is no access to 176 Street south of 8th Avenue. In addition, 0 Avenue is blocked at 184 Street to westbound traffic. Police continue to work with area residents to keep the neighborhood near the border to local traffic only.

Surrey RCMP is working with other provincial and federal RCMP units as well as the Canada Border Services Agency in response to this situation. Enforcement action is continuing today and officers are engaged with protesters in the area.

The RCMP respects the right to peaceful protest but unlawful activity will not be tolerated. Investigations into unlawful activity, including dangerous driving that occurred over the weekend are ongoing.

Over the weekend I was on scene to support policing operations and to assess the situation on Highway 15 firsthand. I understand the frustration of the public who wish to see this situation end, said A/Commr. Brian Edwards, Officer in Charge of Surrey RCMP. I want to assure our community that I am committed to seeing this situation resolved safely, peacefully and as soon as possible.
