Wet’suwet’en supporters slow traffic at Canso Causeway
Demonstrators a presence at Canso Causeway last Saturday

Let me clearly state that I am no expert in law and wish to leave that to the lawyers, the Canadian and First Nation people and leaders, and the RCMP to sort out.
Beginning at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, February 22nd, I saw about 80 or so people gathered at the Canso Causeway to raise awareness to “support the Wet’suwet’en nation” - the one-page pamphlet passed out by the demonstrators read.
It appeared a peaceful demonstration at that point with people carrying placards, sharing dialogue, food, song, and drumming and respectfully passing out pamphlets to passing motorists – some who honked in support, others who quietly drove by, although many accepted the pamphlets.
