Government at an impasse with pipelines and protests

1 0 0

It’s reaching a point where something has to happen.

The problem for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government? None of the solutions are politically palatable.

The problem? Railway and other blockades by people protesting the construction of the Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline in northern British Columbia, and also protesting the RCMP’s enforcement of a court injunction that moved demonstrators who had been halting the project.

Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs oppose the construction of the pipeline, which they say will go through environmentally sensitive and culturally important sites.

One of the most damaging blockades is in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory near Belleville, Ont.

That blockade alone has stopped almost all of the Canadian National Railway’s operations east of Winnipeg.
