Earlier this week blockades were removed as the federal government negotiated a proposed arrangement with the Wet’suwet’en Nation that would recognize its hereditary governance system. The Wet’suwet’en are currently consulting with their members to determine if they will ratify the pact. While the rail blockades have been removed, a week-long protest at the BC Legislature is winding down after five protestors were arrested for mischief. The protesters refused to stand down until the provincial government cancelled the permits for the pipeline. Meanwhile members of the Sc’ianew First Nation, also known as Beecher Bay, say that during the protest, Extinction Rebellion entered their lands without permission and is seeking an apology for the group’s disturbing actions.
