Liberal ‘Deal’ With Some Hereditary Chiefs Doesn’t Even Address Pipeline

It also legitimizes a group of dudes who silenced Indigenous women and stripped them of their hereditary roles.

It seems the Liberals have either allowed themselves to be totally outfoxed and outplayed, or are simply so ignorant that they got totally dominated.

As we know, the hereditary chiefs the Liberals are negotiating with appear to have stripped three women of hereditary titles, which goes against the rules that are supposed to be in place within Wet’suwet’en territory, considering that titles are passed down in a matrilineal system.

In fact, the main face of the hereditary chiefs, and the individual the Liberals have elevated – Chief Woos – has only had that title for a year, and many believe the real Chief Woos is a woman in the community who was stripped of her title.

Now, the Liberals have been totally played, as their ‘historic deal’ apparently “recognizes the hereditary system,” which will boost the power and influence of the hereditary chiefs at the expense of the elected leaders and community members.

It also will encourage more illegal blockades, since they resulted in government action.

Worst of all, the deal doesn’t even address the Coastal GasLink dispute, which the hereditary chiefs say they still oppose.

In short, the deal gives a total win to the hereditary chiefs, while being a loss for the majority of Wet’suwet’en people, the elected leaders, and the Canadian People.

The Liberals got played, and all of us will pay the price.

Worst of all, the very next time they don’t LIKE something all they have to do is call the gang back to the baricades. The terrible, dreadful, worst part of all of this is that the Band Councils have been overwritten by charlatans and (we don’t know yet) it may result in the hopeful everyday indigenous who is hoping for a future consisting of wages and work worthy of him may just have been stomped under the foot of the Liberal assh—- and the foot of their “Hereditary Chiefs” who, to many, appear to be opportunistic imposters.

The lieberals are always playing that kind of games.They are playing stupid and ignorant.They did it British Columbia when they sold BC Rail.They authorised some Dude to sign sales contract of BC Rail,and then when people complained.They said they can do nothing because the authorised Dude signed it.
In Spanish they would say “Navegar con bandera the tarugo”.In English “Navigate with a flag of an idiot”.In other words play stupid.
They are specialist to accomplish their objective in this manner.Its sickening.

This all may be true. Maybe the Millionaire Trustfund Moron needs to dress up like Heavy Costumed First Nations and do a dance for the Media? It might get us a BILLION $$$ deal just like he did in India. The mismanagement of the economy is no reason to not do a dance in Full Blown costume.
