Nine people were arrested during a blockade at Muskrat Falls in Labrador.

The Inuit fear the $11.4 billion dollars hydroelectric project will poison their food sources downstream from the dam.

The group, including Inuit leaders, spend the weekend camped out in front of the site.

A judge issued an injunction prohibiting demonstrators from blocking the site Sunday.

On Monday, Yvonne Jones, the Liberal MP for Labrador told APTN National News that she has requested Fisheries and Oceans Minister Dominic LeBlanc to review the permits issued for the project.
