This article is more of an information bulletin than an article as we cover a number of topics.
I am sure many of you are also frustrated at the lack of support shown by the leadership ranging from local mayors, to our MLA’s and our local MP’s with one exception that being Ellis Ross from Kitimat.
Local acting mayor Gladys Atrill in her silence shows her support for the lawless as well so does Doug Donaldson who thinks delivering donuts to them is a way to garner votes, and Taylor Bachrach who wants Justin to step in and put police on hold and negotiate during the proverbial gun to the head blockade as it continues to happen. His former buddies at the Wilderness Committee, Climate Justice Victoria, the Dogwood, the Narwhal, and the Sierra Club are all siding with the mostly nonaboriginal protestors.
This brings us to our next topic, we need you to help end all of this bullshit, pardon my blunt expression.
Below is a petition we need to sign and share with as many like minded (working class people)
We demand that the people elected by the people of Canada to represent ALL of us stop allowing small groups of people to perform acts of domestic terrorism against the citizens of Canada.
Protest is a right of every Canadian but when that protest blocks commerce, has regular citizens blocked from going about their daily activites, citizens assaulted by protesters, police vehicles damaged(which are owned by the Canadian taxpayer), and traps laid with the intent of causing damage and bodily harm ( trees partially cut and bridge beams sabotaged, spikes on public roadways), this is not protest but domestic terrorism.
We demand it be recognized as such and dealt with accordingly regardless of the participants ancestral heritage, including participants being made to pay all costs associated with enforcing court injunctions including and damages to private,public,or government property.
We are all Canadians and will not allow our rights to go about our lawfull affairs unmolested be taken away.
OK please do this to help us all, next we have another very important story.
It’s this story, about Karla Tait who was arrested for violating the court injunction. She works for the First Nations Health Authority (paid for by OUR tax dollars, and she awarded herself under the guise of the Unistoten Healing Center just shy of half a million dollars, then takes part in the burning of a court injunction order.
On the morning of February 8th, 2020, RCMP officers landed at the gates of Unist'ot'en Village by helicopter. Unist'ot'en chiefs and house members began calling on their ancestors for support. They held a cremation ceremony for Canadian/Indigenous reconciliation, and burned a copy of the injunction that the RCMP was there to serve on behalf of Coastal GasLink (TC Energy). After about 30 minutes, the RCMP got back into their helicopters and left.

“On Feb. 8, after protesters broadcast a video of an employee of the First Nations Health Authority taking part in the burning of a court injunction, the organization issued a news release stating: “The FNHA is aware of a staff member who is currently on unpaid leave with a potential conflict of interest around this project. The staff member in question has completed all necessary conflict of interest documentation and has met all of the requirements.”
We have been silent the last few days during the raid for a number of reasons, primarily there was so much going on in social media it was a full time job just capturing what was being said, between screen grabs, photos and video, we have so much it would take months to upload it all, so we are storing in locally and will use it when we need evidence in our stories.
Last but not least we are trying to sort out the issues with our server, if that’s not possible we might have to move to another domain host.
