In 2014, activists of all ages, ranging from First Nations people to long-time Vancouver residents and new Canadians, ascended Burnaby Mountain in Canada's third largest city. There they made camp on the proposed route of a future pipeline. Their determination to do whatever it takes to keep the project from going forward springs from a firm belief in the need to protect this area of unceded Coastal Salish people for future generations.

Their grit and tenacity is on full display as they face down the RCMP's efforts to tear down the camp. Director David Goldberg captures the intense conviction that was central to the Burnaby Mountain protest. The Caretakers provides food for thought on this project that settlers, First Nations and even local mayors oppose with its substantial risk to the environment.
