COMMENTARY: Canadians are increasingly viewing the blockades as less about Indigenous reconciliation and more about law and order, writes darrellbricker

The short answer? It's complicated, says pollster Darrell Bricker .

Idle No More ), it’s clear where public opinion goes. The more disruption there is, the less interest there will be in a productive dialogue about reconciliation. This is a shame because Canadians have come a long way on these issues and the opportunity for real progress has never been stronger. Story continues below advertisement Protests swell across Canada after police clear rail blockade in Tyendinaga For the sake of meaningful dialogue, this needs to get resolved quickly so a productive conversation can start again. Finally, while Canadians may not be viewing this issue through a political lens today, experience has shown this is unlikely to last. Maintaining public order is a primary responsibility for any government. If the Trudeau government, as well as any provincial government that’s affected, isn’t able to get the situation under control in short order, voters are unlikely to be forgiving the next time they go to the ballot box. Darrell Bricker is Global CEO, Ipsos Public Affairs — METHODOLOGY: This Ipsos poll was conducted between Feb. 21 and Feb. 24, 2020. For this survey, a sample of 1,300 Canadians aged 18+ was interviewed online. Quotas and weighting were employed to ensure that the sample’s composition reflects that of the Canadian population according to census parameters. The precision of Ipsos online polls is measured using a credibility interval. In this case, the poll is accurate to within ± 3.2 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, had all Canadians aged 18+ been polled. The credibility interval will be wider among subsets of the population. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error, and measurement error. Story continues below advertisement Read more:

darrellbricker Canadian are even more committed to to te aboriginal plight, global news seems to think otherwise. I wonder why they are changing thier views? darrellbricker No shit. darrellbricker I find it absurd and don't understand how this is helping their cause. When you inconvenience and upset the gen public, who's going to support you? It's truly ridiculous and pointless.

darrellbricker The nation is not defined by a malignant press or a fee loud malcontents. But there are racist elements in play. Can we be honest this time? darrellbricker Started watching under the dome wish something like that really happen to all rezes darrellbricker Domestic terrorism supported by Trudeau.

darrellbricker It’s becoming clear that the Mohawk ppl are more interested in confrontation and anarchy rather than standing with tbe Wet’suwet’en People. It’s clear they have their own agenda here. Wet’suwet’en Ppl should condemn their behaviour as counterproductive and against the law darrellbricker Just racist ones

darrellbricker Well, considering that most of the FN people the blockaders purport to represent disagree with them, and that they are committing overt acts of terrorism, it's no wonder why. darrellbricker Arrest them we’re paying them with our taxes to protest against the growth of the economy just cut them off simple than they well have to work no time to protest shake your head Canada

darrellbricker When the protesters don’t even know what the pipeline will transport (most are saying oil) you start to wonder what the real purpose is. CoastalGasLink Trudeau cdnpoli

What You Need To Know About The Arrests On Mohawk TerritoryPolice arrested protesters standing in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs. Disappointing to see law and order? should have been rounded up 2 weeks ago and jailed

darrellbricker More like a political agenda! darrellbricker Turn the cameras off and don’t report problem will go away this is a terrible problem created by poor political leaders on both sides darrellbricker major media sure have been working hard to frame it that way, so it's hardly surprising steeletalk darrellbricker Took long enough to figure out what was the obvious!

darrellbricker 'reconsiliation' is such a generic term - by design - such that it'll never be completely resolved. Until it is, hands will be out tirelessly demanding more from others while continuing to complain about what was as they do little to further themselves & demand the state do it. darrellbricker

darrellbricker Considering it was never about reconciliation to begin with...that's not a shock darrellbricker What a revolation ... darrellbricker About money!! Canadians know that. We have supported the Indigenous people on every issue with their lands. Never enough money for them! darrellbricker They’re the opposite of reconciliation efforts.

Opinion: In sacred Tyendinaga, an affirmation of the spirit and significance of Haudenosaunee lawsThe ‘rule of law’ that Canada relies on, and that has been invoked amid the blockades in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs, is rooted in violent colonialism GlobeDebate Been drinking the electric kool-aid? GlobeDebate GlobeDebate Are the railroad tracks in 'sacred' Tyendinaga?

darrellbricker and corporate manipulation. darrellbricker This isn't solidarity! This is division and anarchy! Oh ya 'Diversity is our strength!' This is quite diverse, and making the country quite strong! & Where's Trudeau with his promise to resolve this quickly and peacefully? Trudeau hiding, playing 'hide and seek' again?

darrellbricker How else does a group who has been mistreated for hundreds of years get people to listen? Do they go through a legal system that fails them every day? Or do they engage in civil disobedience, knowing they'll be arrested but it's worth it because now people are forced to listen? darrellbricker Without law & order you welcome chaos & anarchy...There isn’t a nation, land, nor union that can withstand such unrest!

darrellbricker 'Wet'suwet'en solidarity' isn't really 'Wet'suwet'en solidarity'. darrellbricker Since day one. darrellbricker Unfortunately it is illegal, they should be removed. Our government needs to do better but we can’t have radicals burning tires on train tracks crippling our economy. Pipelines are the safest way of transporting compared to rail. Protests are legal but this is above and beyond.

darrellbricker A lot of it is just plain anti business. darrellbricker you think darrellbricker KKKanada I haven't heard that one before🤔

Rail blockades: As new protests develop, optimism around solution buildsJust a day after police removed the rail blockade in Tyendinaga Mohawk territory, more blockades have popped up across Canada in solidarity with a small grou... Optimism? Really. Where do you see that ? More cash

darrellbricker Get the army this is bullshit! darrellbricker Canadians knew this on day one. Only the media continued the relentless false narrative of reconciliation MediaLies FakeNewsMedia FakePolls BiasedExperts FakeReports Propaganda NarrativeControl darrellbricker SHAME FN. SHAME. What good is our great country if we are BANKRUPT. Tsk tsk.

darrellbricker This is getting wild.

Teck Resources has abandoned its Frontier mine plan. Here are the factors being blamedTeck announced its decision amid weeks of blockades in solidarity with B.C.’s Wet’suwet’en First Nation and days before the federal cabinet was expected to make a decision on the project. Eco terrorism and little justin win again Huh? All of Canada knows the Wetsuweten and all other affected FN's SUPPORT the TeckFrontier project because the saw the opportunity to MOVE out of govt-induced poverty! The blockades OPPOSED the Wetsuweten and tried to silence their voice! Remove tweet and make the correction. Your headline is a lie. If they were in solidarity with Wet suwet'en, they would be supporting Coastal Gas line because the Wetsuweten voted in favor of it.

Power Play Faceoff: Debating the LNG pipeline through Wet'suwet'en landAs blockades sprout up across the country in solidarity with Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs who oppose a planned natural gas pipeline in British Columbia, cross-country tensions are boiling over. Ross was correct, although Delgamuukw asserts title it didn't give title to the hereditary chiefs. If the community is in disagreement about their governance by all means they are the ones that need to assert that, but it is wrong to assume the hereditary chiefs have final say. Oh wow.Pam got her comeuppance today.She does need help.Lack of reality is a problem in her world but I am sure she is well compensated This woman is a whack job, why keep bringing her on this show

Wet’suwet’en hereditary chief ‘optimistic,’ ready to talk with RCMP on blockades'I feel optimistic': One of the Wet’suwet’en hereditary leaders says the current plan is for RCMP to phone into a meeting with hereditary chiefs later on Tuesday. eamorris_ Bring in the OPP They get the job done! What the Hell is RCMP LOL a Joke LMAO!! Lol this is so dumb 😂 They may be optimistic but I am fed up with them. I have lost all respect for them.
