Report: Government & Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs Have ‘Proposed Agreement’ In Talks That Left Out Elected Leaders

However, the hereditary chiefs say they still oppose the pipeline, while the elected Wet’suwet’en leaders appear to be left out of the negotiating process.

The government and a representative of the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs say they have an proposed agreement in the ongoing Coastal GasLink dispute.

The dispute, which has led to many illegal blockades amid total weakness from the federal government, has caused significant damage to the economy, and revealed the rule of law to be a joke when the government refused to enforce it.

Of course, the agreement still has to be reviewed by the Wet’suwet’en People, the majority of whom have been left out of the process since elected Wet’suwet’en leaders have not been part of the government negotiations.

As noted by the National Citizens Coalition, this can be effectively seen as giving in to a tiny minority, at the expense of the vast majority of the Wet’suwet’en People:

“MINORITY RULE: Despite not democratically representing their people or the 85% of Wet’suwet’en who support Coastal GasLink, the Trudeau government has bowed to the mob, reaching a “proposed arrangement” with the hereditary chiefs that is light on details.”

Additionally, the hereditary chiefs say they are still opposed to the Coastal GasLink pipeline, raising questions about what kind of agreement could actually have been reached.

Neither the government nor the hereditary chiefs are releasing any actual details on what they say has been arranged.

What nonsense ! ‘Negotiating’ with the MINORITY of the NON elected leaders that don’t want the pipeline….. Wonder what this is going to cost us in ‘secret monies handed over to them ‘ by Trudeau ?!
‘Money is no object’ in the eyes of that fool…

We all need to hear more about this closed room decision. As a Homosapien, with Neanderthal and Denisovan DNA, I feel I need my Comments/Opinions to have the right to be heard. Do I not have the last word? Hereditary all down through History just means Mom married her brother. That is why calling a Person SIR just means they are inbred. I really do love history.

Most likely, spineless Trudeau has caved into the demands of the Hereditary Chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en and has promised to kill that pipeline, just like he has killed every single pipeline since he became PM, But, Trudeau will spin it as a temporary stoppage while Trudeau and his government stall for time, hoping the public just gives up. In the end, Trudeau will say publicly that this is in the national interest and will help fight climate change. And when he performs this betrayal of Canada and Canadians, just watch how fast the outrage and wrath of Canadians rises up… Read more »
