The RCMP have set up a police checkpoint outside of a Wet’suwet’en First Nation site that evicted a gas company earlier this month.
Jagmeet Singh sends out a tweet saying
"News out of Wet’suwet’en territory is concerning. Mr. Trudeau says the right things about relationships with Indigenous peoples but he must match those words with respect, justice & actions. The fed gov’t is responsible for the RCMP & must answer for their choices & use of force."
However Justin Trudeau has nothing to do with this. It falls under provincial jurisdiction. As CBC National News Anchor Rosemary Barton tweeted
"The NDP leader conveniently leaves out that this project is of provincial jurisdiction and approved by the NDP premier of the province. So what exactly is he asking Ottawa to do? Direct the RCMP? Intervene? Tell BC what to do?"
So I would assume this is a fight with John Horgan, right?
