Andrew Scheer on RCMP Offer to Move Wet’suwet’en Post

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer speaks with reporters in Ottawa about the RCMP’s offer to move its temporary detachment on Wet’suwet’en territory in northern British Columbia to a nearby town. Supporters of Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs who oppose the Coastal GasLink pipeline project have set up camps between the police checkpoint and the work site. Rail blockades mounted in a number of locations nationwide in support of the hereditary chiefs have disrupted Canada’s rail system. (February 20, 2020) (no interpretation)
