Tentative agreement reached to ensure safety of Wet’suwet’en members on their territory

A tentative agreement was reached on January 9 between hereditary leaders of the Wet’suwet’en and the RCMP as a measure to ensure the safety of Wet’suwet’en members on their unceded territory. Coastal GasLink, which seeks to build a pipeline on their territory, was invited by the chiefs to sit in on the discussion to ensure the company is on the same page.

The agreement came two days after the raid by RCMP officers to enforce a court injunction to dismantle the Gidimt’en checkpoint and give the company access. Chief Na’moks, speaking on behalf of the hereditary chiefs, was unequivocal that they will continue to fight the project and that the agreement is in no way a “consultation or accommodation of any sense.”
