Marlene Hale has just returned to Montreal from her Wet’suet’en territory in BC. She had brought a Human Rights lawyer from Montreal there to meet with Hereditary Chiefs, and both sides of the pipeline. “I got to see at first hand the atrocity it has caused our people of Smithers BC and Witset as preparations resumed to tunnel under the Morice River [Wedzin Kwa] south of Houston BC, as construction of its natural gas pipeline from northeastern B.C. to the LNG Canada liquefied natural gas facility now underway at Kitimat continues.” Marlene will give an update on the Coastal Gas Link and its impact on the Wet’suwet’en Nation.
The Coastal Gas Link will transport Liquid Natural Gas through Wet’suwet’en Territory from Dawson Creek where it is extracted by fracking. She will speak about our Fossil Fuel Addiction, which is supported by Canada’s largest fossil fuel investor – RBC. “RBC must be accountable to their direct contributions to the endangerment of Indigenous Title and Rights.”
