The Canada Border Services Agency confirms traffic is moving again at the Pacific Highway border crossing just south of Vancouver.

Protesters opposed to public health mandates blocked routes leading to that crossing on the weekend.

The port of entry was never closed but the protests, and police barricades to contain them, stopped all but pedestrian traffic from reaching it.

The Pacific Highway crossing is the main entry for commercial traffic to and from British Columbia and Washington state.
