Protesters Charged with Mischief, 'Breaking Out' After Calgary Greenpeace Action

CALGARY - Calgary Police have laid charges against nine people in connection with Tuesday's Greenpeace protest at the Calgary Tower.

Two Calgarians are among the nine, each of whom are charged with one count of "breaking out" related to leaving the tower and climbing onto the roof, and one count of mischief to property under $5,000.

Greenpeace activists in full climbing gear unfurled a huge banner Tuesday, protesting what they said is a "cozy" relationship between big oil and the federal and provincial governments.
