Vanessa Gray, 24, of Sarnia, along with Guelph residents Sarah Scanlon, 30, and Stone Stewart, 29, had been facing charges of mischief endangering lives and mischief over $5,000 after they occupied an Enbridge site on Mandaumin Road and allegedly manually shut down a valve there on Dec. 21, 2015.
But after a year-long legal battle including a series of meetings between the Crown and the defence to arrive at a resolution all charges were withdrawn against the women Friday after they agreed to an 18-month court order to stay away from Enbridge property.
