The "Rule of Law"...as it applies to First Nations

UPDATE:  February 18, 2020 - You have to go to the foreign press to find out the truth about what's going on in Canada.  I learned today for the first time that the Coastal GasLink pipeline--the subject of the current political and economic crisis in Canada--is for "fracked" gas.  Not only that, but the pipeline itself is a large enough diameter to eventually carry a combination of bitumen and LNG.  The government and their bought globalist pandering press NEVER tell us this stuff!

Sometimes the geopolitical scene is so ridiculous all you can do is laff.  People think I enjoy my new favourite blog "The Beaverton" (which pokes fun at politics). too much.  Well, what else can you do when you see headlines like the following that recently appeared in CTV, one of Canada's main newz sources:

"Canada doesn't tell police what to do, Trudeau says of rail blockades"

Lol.  Trudeau is obviously hoping that Canadians are suffering from mass amnesia.  That we don't remember the SNC Lavalin Scandal just last year where Trudeau was almost regime-changed out of office on the pretext of ordering Canada's chief law enforcement official, the Attorney General, to do a special deal for the criminal corporation which had its head office, or something, in his riding.  No, Canada doesn't bother to tell the cop on the beat what to do.  It goes straight to the top!

Speaking of the former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould.  Wouldn't it have been nice to have her still in the Liberal cabinet, able to lend a hand to get Canada out of it's perennial pickle with First Nations?  But, nooooooooo.  She was fired and kicked out of the party for refusing to bend a knee to rampant political interference in the so-called "Rule of Law"[TM] in Canada.

Meeting with Marc Miller comes on 10th day of CN Rail stoppage near Belleville, Ont.

So, now Canada has to make do with non-aboriginal Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller who trundled off to meet with the Mohawks near the railway tracks in Bellville, Ontario. The scene was so bleak it reminded me of why I moved from Ontario to BC back in 1974. Brrrrrrrrrr.

The Ontario-based Mohawks, along with other First Nations communities across Canada are demonstrating in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en Nation in northern British Columbia. It seems that the Canadian First Nations are using something known as "social media" to tee up and co-ordinate their responses to the Federal Government's insistence on allowing the Coastal GasLink pipeline to tear up the pristine spiritual grounds in northern BC. This...rather than take the recommended [by the Wet’suwet’en Nation] 89 km detour further north, which would put them on already degraded land [already has highways and pipelines on it]. The gas pipeline company complains that the detour would add 800 million to the $6.6 billion fracked-gas pipeline project, and would endanger "urban" [i.e., "white" lands]. No....says Coastal GasLink. We need to go through pristine land. That way we can monetize it forever.

Meanwhile, the RCMP are making sure that no reporters are camping out with the Wet’suwet’en Nation who are camping out on their own land...preventing the pipeline construction from going forward while the long simmering matter is finally brought to a "peaceful" [as Trudeau hopes] conclusion.

The main impediment to resolving the matter is the Wet’suwet’en Nation insistence on having their hereditary chiefs have the final say for the community. The pipeline company has already got the elected band members' permission to trammel and scour the land. That's the façade of "Democracy" as we in the West have come to know and accept it. Elect "leaders" and then bribe, bully or blackmail them. This has been taken to ridiculous heights in USrael, formerly known as The United States of America. In those lands you have to be a billionaire to be elected dogcatcher in most major cities.

The Wet’suwet’en Nation hereditary chiefs cannot be bought off, bribed or blackmailed. They really believe they're merely stewards of the land and are holding it in perpetuity for their descendants. This notion of long term thinking/planning is anathema to pipeline mentalities...with them it's DIG right now!  No time for environmental assessments! To Hell with the future!  Or, as that French King [Louis XV] said:  "Après moi, le déluge".  If we're thwarted in any way, say the globalist Mammon-obsessed powerbrokers...I guess we'll have to resort to "other means".

And so, the stand-off continues.  With the easy and obvious "89km detour" solution carefully hidden in mainstream reports about the tense discussions between the First Nations and the Federal Government.   All the greencrow can say at this point is...if you think that this standoff is serious...wait until they try to push the TMX through the streets, down the mountainside and into the tiny pristine [not] waters of Burrard Inlet!
