First Nations predict "hordes" will disrupt Parliament Hill if pipelines approved

 


Hunger strikes. Occupations. Civil disobedience.

First Nations chiefs across Canada haven't discussed the details of the plan yet, but they aren't ruling anything out if the Trudeau government approves the construction of a major pipeline project that crosses their territory without their consent. Several are still waiting on the results of court cases before they make their move, and others are already preparing for the worst.

“You may see hordes descending upon Parliament Hill," said Chief Susan Miller, of the Katzie First Nation in B.C. "We have had some discussion around what civil action would look like, and I think the more we work together, that’s what brings out the hordes. It’s an impressive sight, to see thousands of people coming out for a common cause.”
