Two folks from the pro-pipeline group Suits and Boots had been allegedly assaulted on Monday evening at Camp Cloud.
They introduced a bulldozer with them to the campsite, which was meant for a photograph op.
President Rick Peterson mentioned the campers attacked the guests.

Peterson mentioned they had been standing up for jobs.
“We think its time for people in the pro-resource sector stand up and the bulldozer was a symbol for the construction workers that we hope eventually get to work on Trans Mountain.”
Camp Cloud has been arrange outdoors of the Kinder Morgan gates in Burnaby since February.
Last week the City of Burnaby gave the campers eviction notices, however they vow to not comply.
Global News has reached out to Camp Cloud for remark.
