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.
