Our Elders wept as they surveyed the damage left behind by CGL at a trapping site our people have always used. A day after a sweat ceremony, with RCMP threatening the arrest of our trappers and healing centre clients, CGL contractors illegally destroyed the rest of one of our traplines.
We see daily how RCMP permits CGL to break Canadian laws, while we are threatened with arrest for exercising our rights and title. We have never ceded or surrendered our rights to this land, and we never will.
We abide by their injunction and all that we have asked is that they uphold their own laws. The RCMP has openly violated its agreement with our chiefs. They waste our time daily. CGL continuously harasses our healing centre clients, while RCMP threatens enforcement.
Canada hates us. Canada hates Wet’suwet’en, Mi’kmaq, Tahtlan, Nehiyaw, Anishinaabe, Kaska, Denesuline, Secwepemc, and the list goes on. Canada hates us all.
Rise up. We cannot let them win.
