Canada walked into a political and diplomatic trap of its own making when it took it upon itself to create a self-appointed busybody lobby called The Group of Lima.

Wet’suwet’en territory and bridge - Jerome Turner

Pipeline in Wet’suwet’en territory could be delayed by several months
 

Coastal GasLink’s final Technical Data Report for a pipeline the company plans to build through unceded Wet’suwet’en territory has been rejected by the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. As a result, work on the pipeline in the area of the Unist’ot’en Healing Centre may be delayed.

'Land Back' protest

Export Development Canada (EDC) is a little-known federal Crown corporation with a track record of using public finance to back projects that violate Indigenous rights and push past our global carbon budgets.

When EDC acted as a key financier to allow for the government’s purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline in 2018, I thought I had seen the worst.

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau and Deputy Prime Minister Freeland,

“Hands off Wet’suwet’en! Hands off Wet’suwet’en!”

As the western sun sank into the Pacific, hundreds of voices echoed around the transit station at Commercial Drive and Broadway in Vancouver.

Hundreds of people again blocked a key intersection in this West Coast city, snarling rush-hour traffic and closing out the 13th straight day of nationwide solidarity actions in support of the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs and their fight against the Coastal GasLink pipeline through their traditional territory.

Canada has reached a watershed moment.

Will it continue to bulldoze Indigenous rights in the name of resource exploitation and jobs and profits for the few, or it will renounce its colonialist past and strike out on the path of respect, collaboration and partnership with Indigenous people?
