VANCOUVER — The actions of police officers toward a group of protesters during a demonstration on Friday in Vancouver will be reviewed by a professional standards committee, says a spokesperson for the Vancouver Police Department.

A video clip, which has circulated widely on social media, shows members of the Vancouver Police Department aggressively handling and pushing protesters to the ground. In one instance a police officer pulls a person by their hair.

The clip appears to have been taken on Friday, Feb. 19, by anti-pipeline protesters who occupied the lobby of an office building in Vancouver to protest the expansion of the Trans-Mountain pipeline. Protesters said they chose the building because it holds the offices of AIG Insurance, which is providing insurance to the pipeline project.
