A pipeline offers a stark reminder of Canada’s ongoing colonialism
As Coastal GasLink employees cleared the camp to make way for a natural gas pipeline, they sawed in half a wooden gate with one word painted on it: “reconciliation.”

That word has been used by the Canadian government to describe their supposed desire to make things right with the indigenous people after centuries of ongoing genocide. But “reconciliation” is not an official policy but rather a political buzzword repurposed to signal moral progress on indigenous issues.

However, right now it is very hard to argue that Canada’s treatment of indigenous people actually has progressed.

Nanaimo-Ladysmith MP visits Wet’suwet’en camps, calls for Coastal GasLink pipeline to be ‘revisited’ – Nanaimo News Bulletin
“The Wet’suwet’en hereditary Chiefs provided alternative routes to Coastal GasLink that would have been acceptable to them as a pipeline corridor. Coastal GasLink decided that it did not want to take those acceptable options and instead insisted on a route that drives the pipeline through ecologically pristine and culturally important areas.”
