Remember How We Admired the Dakota Pipeline Protests?
A lot of Canadians expressed support when American First Nations protesters tried to block the Keystone XL pipeline at Standing Rock in rural North Dakota.
It's Canadian First Nations who are now leading the resistance to the threats posed by pipeline projects supported by both provincial and federal governments.
It's probably time we stood with them, showed a little solidarity.
First Nation protesters have come out in Ontario to block the railway lines between Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. In Winnipeg yesterday local First Nations shut down Portage Avenue in front of the RCMP headquarters.
