May 23, 2022- Kootenay Morning with Louis Bockner

Photojournalist Louis Bockner describers his disturbing experience of covering the protests last week of old growth logging in Argenta when a “squad” of 30 RCMP officers specially trained to arrest protesters came in and arrested 17 people, including Louis’ 75 year old mother who was trying to leave the area. Louis’ photographs will be coming out soon in The Narwhal, CBC, and other venues.
