Wet'suwet'en, Canada Rail Shutdown

18.2.2020

'People are upset and frustrated. I get it,' Trudeau said about the rail blockades that have interrupted VIA Rail service.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer slammed Trudeau for not denouncing ongoing blockades.

Limited service was restored by Via Rail on Tuesday along the Ottawa-Montreal-Quebec City corridor, which is not being blockaded. 3:26 Trudeau government remains uncertain on resolution to blockades Trudeau government remains uncertain on resolution to blockades A similar protest briefly shut down the border crossing to the U.S. at Thousand Islands Bridge just east of Kingston, Ont., but that has since reopened. Story continues below advertisement Other protests across the country have intermittently blocked access to government buildings, including the B.C. Legislature. Businesses and industry groups have repeatedly raised concerns that the shutdown is hurting supply chains across the country and raising the risk of shortages of propane and chlorine, which is commonly used in water treatment plants. “I know that people’s patience is running short. We need to find a solution and we need to find it now,” Trudeau said, but warned that his government doesn’t want to take any action that could escalate the tensions. “There are those who would want us to act in haste, who want us to boil this down to slogans and ignore complexities, who think using force is helpful. It is not. Patience may be in short supply but that makes it more valuable than ever.” 1:47 Indigenous Services minister says solving rail blockades must be done ‘the right way’ Indigenous Services minister says solving rail blockades must be done ‘the right way’ Throughout his speech, Trudeau was heckled by other members of the House of Commons. And when Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer rose to give his response, he slammed the prime minister for not denouncing the blockades and presenting a clear action plan for how he would move forward. “That was the weakest response to a national crisis in Canadian history,” Scheer said. “The prime minister’s statement was a complete abdication of responsibility and a failure of leadership. Story continues below advertisement Rail blockades must be resolved ‘the right way,’ Indigenous Services minister says Scheer has said he would direct the RCMP to remove the blockades if he were in government. While that power does technically exist, it has not been frequently used and carries with it the risk of being accused of political interference in policing. The federal government also has the authority to send in the military under the Emergency Measures Act but has indicated it believes using that power would escalate the situation and potentially put lives at risk. Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller met with some of the protesters blocking the railroad near Belleville over the weekend and told The West Block ‘s Mercedes Stephenson that he believed “modest progress” had been made. But the blockade remains in place and he would not say what recommendations he offered to Trudeau as a result of that meeting. Perry Bellegarde, national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, said in a press conference on Tuesday that industry and governments across the country must work with the Wet’suwet’en people to reach a resolution. © 2020 Global News, a division of Corus Entertainment Inc.

He stated a plan. Let the parties talk and have communication. Like human beings. Here is the law. The company does not have official rights to be there. He has no plan. Hes destroying Canada. He needs to be removed from office NOW JustinTrudeau Would the watsuweten nation be interested in paid youth post secondary schooling as a trade off for access? Paid for by the pipeline company? This could change the futures for an entire generation?

He won’t face any real questions from Canadian Media. There's no clear plan when you make it up as you go... Wicked is as wicked does. JT completely two faced and diabolical And the protests will resolve themselves Hum. No clear plan. How about bringing in the army!!! sarahlritchie 6,200,000 Canadian Conservative voters were denied Representation by the Divisive Prime Minister on an important national discussion Do you believe this is fair action; or do you subscribe that we must all be of one politbureau consensus?

The PM who keeps calling for more 'dialogue' won't even 'dialogue' with the leader of HM's Opposition, instead shutting him out of a meeting with all other party leaders. CanadianPM JustinTrudeau is a lying liberal who hates Canada and Canadians. Trudeau is a disaster and is the worst possible thing that could and has ever happened to Canada. R.I.P. Canadians.

Just more SCHEER idiocy. Mini-Trump thinks he has the right to 'slam' JT? Sure, JT needs to step up and do the right thing. (*cough* End the blockades by withdrawing a pipeline the gov't should never have purchased*Cough*) But scheer has no leg to stand on to 'Slam' anything.

Trudeau cancels Barbados trip to focus on resolving rail blockades across CanadaCanadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has cancelled a planned trip to Barbados, as nationwide demonstrations continue in support of an anti- pipeline protest ... Why? I'm sure they were excited to see his Fancy Socks!!! Blackface Trudeau wants to bring in the military like his dad did This guy is an

Typical of the hand-wringing Liberals. Respectful dialogue seems reasonable. None of them will answer anything. They’ll just spout the usual pathetic Liberal talking points. quelle surprise. 'Trudeau says rail blockades need to be resolved' WOW, there it is, the reason he is our leader If only others had seen this earlier!

Trudeau can't tell the cops what to do, but he can tell them what not to do...got it. Fancy Socks answering questions? April fools is over a month away! Unresolved, because the Magic Wand and the Time Machine have yet to be invented Don’t worry. According to radical liberals, the blockades will continue until dialogue has been completed . 8-10 months. cdnpoli

Trudeau tight-lipped on plan to end rail blockades ‘quickly and peacefully’The protests began nearly two weeks ago after the hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en Nation intensified their opposition to the construction of a $6.6-billion natural gas pipeline across B.C. Crickets TrudeauMustGo noconfidencevote The man is a total disaster for Canadian interests,he needs to step down I’m tight-lipped on my plan to become a billionaire “quickly and peacefully”. Ps, we both have the same plan and we both have zero clue what that is.

Maybe if the federal and provincial governments got off their power trip and followed treaties we would not be in this situation! JustinTrudeau premier John Horgan. The First Nations were here first. WE LIVE ON STOLEN LAND!! It's only costing us a few hundred million a day.... take your time. Now that they acknowledge first peoples law existed before settler law, it's a whole new ballgame...yikes

Well then darn well do something about it by first upholding the law of the country JustinTrudeau 'offers no clear plan' What a surprise - NOT He has never succeeded at anything in his whole life naw trudeau doesn’t get it, all he does is talk and does nothing. Liberal party can not afford Trudeau! Liberal party needs a new leader! resigntrudeau cdnpoli TrudeauMustGo

He has no plan or a clue what to do. His voter base has been affected and those on the fence are falling yo the right. He doesn’t get it as it doesn’t affect sock boy. Why can't we push back the protesters 100 meters so they can still protest but not block the rail tracks ? Seems like a compromise to me.

And yet they still let it happen....

PM Trudeau to meet with emergency response group as rail blockades growPrime Minister Justin Trudeau will convene the Incident Response Group Monday, to address ongoing protests and rail blockades across the country, but experts say it will be a long road to progress. Action not meetings. Useless, pathetic, weak PM. Nothing will get done wth this loser apperently in charge!!! My guess is it wil, be his typical manipulation Blame 'privilege' and 'we' while finding somewhere else to redirect blame instead of his own incompetence Meanwhile the wishes of the majority of hereditary chiefs and elected band councils who support the project will be ignored

No...no you don’t get it JustinTrudeau cafreeland because if you truly did this crap would have been nipped in the bud WEEKS ago!! AndrewScheer He gave Omar Khadr 10.5 million ... wonder how much he’s going to hand them? These protestors need to stand Infront of his plane. He doesn’t give a shit about Canada.

The only thing turdeau gets is a lot of time off at taxpayer expense “The blockades will balance themselves” As usual he doesnt get it So, do you really JustinTrudeau, your Governments inability to resolve this matter cost me another $200 to have my son return home from school. Yes I paid it, but he was all set with his prior Via reservations. Get shit done, stop talking!

Trudeau crap Then do something. You are the top lawmaker in the country. Hey they are burning people ALIVE in Africa and our government wants to bring these folks here by the millions inevitably starting a war . How about we talk about that ? Just a thought cupcakes .

Skipping Barbados trip, PM Trudeau to meet with emergency response groupPrime Minister Justin Trudeau will convene the Incident Response Group Monday, to address ongoing protests and rail blockades across the country, but experts say it will be a long road to progress. Là c’est très grave Practice his typical emotional manipulation Blame 'privilege' and 'we' while finding somewhere else to redirect blame instead of his own incompetence Meanwhile the wishes of the majority of hereditary chiefs and elected band councils who support the project will be ignored Shocking but I’m sure he will make up for his one day of work tenfold !TrudeauWorstPM

Well if you get it then stop it!!!! As usual you’re all talk and no action👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿 We need a man as PM of Canada not as useless clown 🤡🤮 We have a “Leadership Emergency” in Canada!!!! In fairness to Trudeau he can’t offer a plan until he consults with Hereditary Chiefs and all Indigenous Chiefs. It is their land not ours!

Resign JustinTrudeau No you really dont get it sir JustinTrudeau while this unfolded U flew off to give away $$ for oil/gas in Africa while Alberta/CDNs suffer. U give millions to African dictators who throw people in jail simply for being gay. U cost millions in lost $ becus U dont uphold the LAW. Unfortunately, Trudeau's words always seem to lack substance, sincerity, and action. Hearing him speak always comes off so fake, not unlike many other politicians... ActionNotWords please. ParForTheCourse cdnpoli

He says he 'gets it', but then he does NOTHING except more talk. liberal_party needs to remove JustinTrudeau, he is NOT a good leader/prime minister. Easiest resolution ever... Withdraw the pipeline. Acknowledge the Hereditary Chiefs (Because the elected chiefs were 'elected' by white people... and election wasn't a thing first nations did until they were colonized!) There. Resolved.

No, you really do not get it at all or you would be taking swift, decisive action to dissuade the lawlessness that is threatening to rip apart Canada’s economy and social fabric. Just useless and in over his head. Him and his entire cabinet.

Trudeau holds emergency meeting to address rail blockadesPrime Minister Justin Trudeau will convene the Incident Response Group Monday, to address ongoing protests and rail blockades across the country, but experts say it will be a long road to progress. Did he buy donuts? ...and insists on installing 'Cow Catchers' on the front of trains. The 'emergency meeting' was under 90 minutes and now over....

JT has now matured to the point he can change his own diapers🤡🤢🤡🤢 He's about to throw some money to the natives By doing nothing he is empowering these idiots and will ultimately lead to more protests and more civil unrest every time a millennial gets their feelings hurt. Weakest PM and government in Canadian history. We have Eastern Canada to thank for it . Hopefully that's where the impact of this gross inaction is felt the worst.

Funny how the issue of chlorine supplies being choked, is waved around. Nobody gives a damn about water in many aboriginal communities being contaminated, at risk or inaccessible. think Wetsuwetan He looks a lot older in recent days. Look at that beard! HE'S SUCH A USELESS PLUG!!! What's he supposed to do?

JustinTrudeau does not get anything! The people are frustrated with JustinTrudeau destroying 🇨🇦 for his own personal goals!! Stop the hold up of compensation for indigenous ppl that you have in the court system regarding the gvnmt taking their children and putting them into government run schools years ago!

Trudeau skipping Caribbean trip amid rail blockades, protestsPrime Minister Justin Trudeau has cancelled a planned trip to Barbados as protests continue to choke rail travel across the country. not a fan, but this is not his issue. What a noble thing to do Awwww poor justin !
