Watch Closely The Governments And Hereditary Chiefs Meeting —Questions-Comments

1. Sadly we now know that breaking the law works . Can we all go out now and seek change by breaking the law ?

2. Who speaks for the Indigenous people ? Is it the elected chiefs or the hereditary chiefs?

3. Seems clear that right now it is the hereditary chiefs who break the law.

4. So will the hereditary chiefs insist that their consent must be obtained for any development to occur on their traditional lands?

5. If they gain that power of consent it means that present Canadian law is being violated and the UN Declaration on Rights Of Indigenous Peoples takes precedence .

6. Right now to gain title to land and hence consent power over development an indigenous group must seek such title through the courts.

7. And even if title is granted by the court and consent is withheld for a development project , under present Canadian law , a developer has recourse to challenge that lack of consent.

Canadians should keenly watch what is now taking place since it is likely new precedents will be established that will have profound repercussions for our future.

One has already been established —-that violating certain Canadian Law , like injunctions, is not only condoned but significant power can be gained by those committing the crime. The proof is obvious —RCMP closed down their office , and the pipeline company ceased construction —two conditions that the injunction violators demanded before even a meeting could take place.

  1. I dislike Justin Trudeau. I don’t think he is a fit leader. But, I argue, he is playing this brilliantly.

    Why do I say this? Justin wants to fight climate change. He’s made no secret of that. In unguarded moments he’s said he wants to shut in the oil sands. Then, he stopped saying that because he realized he had to get and stay elected.

    His friends and key advisors (example Gerald Butts and Sarah Goodman) oppose large oil and gas projects. They also have excellent ties to the anti-hydrocarbon movement.

    Civil disobedience is a well known tool of the anti-hydrocarbon movement. The current protests were entirely predictable.

    With a minority government, and rumoured Liberal caucus dissatisfaction with his leadership, Justin is concerned about his ability to stay in power. So I think Justin is rolling the dice on climate change prevention. He is now deliberately doing very little about the protests. Why?

    1. He wants the premiers to take the political fallout from ending the protests.

    2. He wants the companies involved in the projects to pull out. Thus, he can say “not my fault” these projects were cancelled. The Teck mine is successful cancellation one.

    If we look at Justin’s behaviour, keeping his goal of climate change prevention in mind, then his current actions are understandable.

  2. I’ve been watching this closely. It’s apparent that the Rule of Law is applies to some but not to all. Trudeau is destroying Canada. I don’t believe that Canada can be fixed.
