‘Pipe Fiction’

Canadian media continues to give widespread exposure to unelected, unaccountable, misleading aboriginal race activists, further exacerbating an unhealthy racist discourse in Canada: 

“From Standing Rock to The Assembly of ‘First Nations’…opposition to pipelines has become a rallying cry, and a hill many political leaders have staked out as their preferred location for death…

“…A few years ago, I visited the Unist’ot’en camp in British Columbia. This camp is located west of Prince George, on the proposed right-of-way of the ‘Gateway’ pipeline. I was impressed by the resolve and commitment of the people who had set up camp and remained for several years. They were creating a permanent settlement within ‘their’ unceded territory.

He conveniently omits the fact that the protest camp is at least partly funded by Vancouver Lower Mainland anarchists and environmentalists, was initially set up to oppose a natural gas pipeline that is also coming through that area, and is NOT supported by the local elected tribal chiefs..: 

‘Wet’suwet’en chiefs distance ‘First Nation’ from Unist’ot’en camp, urge cooperation with pipeline companies’

“…Wet’suwet’en chief Karen Ogen, Nee Tahi Buhn chief Ray Morris, Burns Lake Band chief Dan George, and Skin Tyee ‘Nation’ chief Rene Skin issued a media release that distances the ‘First Nation’ as a whole from the camp’s actions. Going further, it denounces the camp’s goal of blocking pipeline developments…”

“We’re all Wet’suwet’en,”

Chief Karen Ogen told the ‘Straight’ in a phone interview. Ogen leads the erstwhile Broman Lake Indian Band. Currently known as the Wet’suwet’en ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 247 people}, her community is a partner in the pipeline project, one of many planned for B.C.’s nascent liquefied natural gas industry.

“We have a choice to either maintain the status quo in our community, keep things as they are, keep the social issues and people on high rates of income assistance, or we could look at this as an opportunity to move our ‘nation’ forward,” she said…” 


Then, he continues the misinformation…
“This summer I visited Standing Rock and I was also impressed by the commitment and strong cultural foundation of the people… These two sites are where the ‘indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} people have drawn the line and said that no pipeline shall pass. The Tshilcoten people at the Unist’ot’en camp have won their battle and Standing Rock is still remains in the balance.

Well, not quite. The Unist’ot’en camp still has to deal with the coming gas pipeline — and their elected leaders’ support for it — while Standing Rock is largely the product of outsiders:

“The Standing Rock Sioux call this reservation home, and many are not on the frontlines of this months-long, and at times violent, protest…

“No one makes this clearer than Robert Fool Bear Sr., 54, district chairman of Cannon Ball. The town he runs, estimated population of 840, is just a few miles from the action. It’s so close that, given the face-offs with law enforcement, you have to pass through a police checkpoint to reach it. It’s about time people heard from folks like him, he says.

“Fool Bear has had it with the protesters. He says that more than two years ago, when members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe could have attended hearings to make their concerns known, they didn’t care. Now, suddenly, the crowds are out of control, and he fears it’s just a matter of time before someone gets seriously hurt.

“Go down to the camps, he says, and you won’t see many Standing Rock Sioux…

“Just look at a recent vote in the community for further proof that Fool Bear’s not the only naysayer. When protest organizers presented a request to build a new winter camp in Cannon Ball earlier this month, his community shot it down.

“Of the 88 people who voted, he says 66 were against the camp, less than 10 were for it and the rest remained undecided…”
‘Pipeline Phobia’ (Standing Rock, U.S.) {November 23, 2016}:

He finishes with yet another extortionist threat aimed at the Canadian economy and people:
“The issue of pipeline construction is just ramping up and I predict that next year we will see demonstrations in Canada on par with Standing Rock. After years of being pushed aside and left out of the Canadian economy, our people either want in or are prepared to flex our political muscles and bring construction to a stop.”

Death Threat?{April 10, 2014}:
“On November 20, 2012, ‘Toghestiy’ did what his ancestors would have done to people not welcome in their territory. Confronting surveyors for a gas pipeline planned in Northern B.C, he handed them an eagle feather in accordance with Wet’suwet’en law. It was the first and final warning that anyone involved with the Pacific Trail Pipelines isn’t allowed to return. According to Toghestiy, his forebears didn’t look kindly on anyone who ignores such warning.

“In the old days, our people dealt with that with death,” Toghestiy told the ‘Georgia Straight’… “…this is something that our ancestors have done for thousands of years. They’ve given us more and more reasons to evoke all of our old laws again because, you know, we’re not gone. We’re not extinct. We’re still here. We’re living on ‘our lands’.”

“…they will not in future object to the construction of railroads, wagon-roads, mail-stations, or other works of utility or necessity, which may be ordered or permitted by the laws of the United States.”


Aboriginal Support For Gas Pipelines{April 16, 2016}:
“The latest to sign revenue deals this December are the Wet’suwet’en, Skin Tyee and Nee Tahi Buhn in north-central B.C. They signed revenue deals with the province for TransCanada’s $4.7-billion Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline… The Nisga’a in northwest B.C. signed a revenue deal with the province in late November for TransCanada’s $6-billion Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project…”


Chiefs Facing Off Over Pipelines{January 10, 2015}:
“Wet’suwet’en ‘First Nation’ chief Karen Ogen said her community considers gas more benign than oil, as gas evaporates in the event of a leak. She also pointed to the existence of a natural gas line constructed in 1968 in northern B.C. for domestic use (the Pacific Northern Gas line).

“Ogen said it is important to know this line has not destroyed their traditional territory or their ability to hunt and fish and gather traditional foods and medicines…”
