Where is the Shiny One these days, anyway?
The rail barricade on a train bridge over Wellington Street [Montreal] comes after hereditary chiefs and senior ministers of the federal and British Columbia governments struck a proposed agreement on land rights.
The group behind the protest, called Southwest Solidarity With Wet’suwet’en, said in a statement the action is due to the presence of RCMP and the Coastal GasLink pipeline on the territory in northern B.C.
“We are blocking this rail line in response to the call from Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs to support Indigenous sovereignty and in recognition of the urgency of stopping resource extraction projects threatening future generations,” said Sara Mullins, a participant in the protest.
