N.D.P.'s Donaldson joins illegal blockade

AND a ridiculous statement from a learned academic
"The use of heavily armed RCMP officers to enforce a court injunction and breach an Indigenous blockade along a remote northern British Columbia logging road Monday was unnecessary, an expert says.

Kevin Walby, an associate professor of criminal justice at the University of Winnipeg, said social media video that has emerged shows no escalation of violence from protesters that would have necessitated the substantial intervention."

Unless Kevin Walby has an associate degree in Police Tactics, we don't want to hear his hair brain remarks.

The Police mount numbers against protestors to make any resistance fruitless, hence the avoidance of violence.
Getting pretty sick of hearing another protest from more Indigenous people, (our people Canadians) not willing to push for industry together to benefit all. Who is supporting you? Companies in the US?
Remember this gas exported is used for fuel cells to generate electricity in South Asian countries INSTEAD of burning coal which would do us in a lot sooner.

Has no idea what he is talking about. Are you aware the Recall act was changed that makes it even harder to remove elected officials. Not a supporter of that policy per se but how can you possibly think he'd be removed or have to resign. Elizabeth may and Kennedy Stewart were arrested just last year in a similar protest. And one is now mayor of Vancouver LOL.

Horgan tells another lie. Donaldson is the M.L.A. for Stikine, and the protest camp is not within that riding's jurisdiction.

The camp is in the Nechako Lakes riding, and the local M.L.A. is John Rustad.


Horgan Supports Donaldson's Visit To Pipeline Blockade

VICTORIA - Premier John Horgan calls Forests and Natural Resource Minister Doug Donaldson's visit to the pipeline blockade near Houston "highly appropriate."

In a news conference Wednesday, Horgan told reporters that in order to find a solution, there needs to be dialogue and "who better than the local MLA to be there before the RCMP enforced the order, to hear one last time what the concerns were."

The Premier said that the MLA for Stikine followed the necessary protocols when he attended the Wet'suwet'en camp, which included bringing a gift. Once Donaldson was there, Horgan adds that the Minister heard the people's concerns and then left.

what a buffoon Horgan is. Just ridiculous.

How about non natives put up a blockade stopping natives from leaving the reserve?

I must admit that I enjoyed the spectacle of the BC NDP getting protested over a pipeline. The "party of protest" (John Horgan's description) getting protested [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif]

Well Horgan, that argument fell flat on its arse. What a buffoon indeed.
