As Coastal GasLink announces they have completed installation of their gas pipeline from Northeast B.C. to the LNG Canada site in Kitimat, courts in Smithers heard cases against Wet’suwet’en Land Defenders.

Prosecutors allege Chief Si’hile of the Wet’suwet’en and several other clan members, violated a court injunction during construction of the CGL pipeline. These cases have been dragging through the court system, for nearly two years, and several cases are not likely to be resolved until 2024.

All defendants were arrested at various times over the past three years. A saga that seems to have no end in sight.

The RCMP’s CIRG division, continues to patrol the CGL pipeline route, and arrest Gidemden Camp supporters with the same line: “Our actions and those of the individuals arrested are subject to a judicial process that we must respect,” according to the RCMP.

The last arrest was in March of this year.

Today we speak with Sladyo, Molly Wickham, about the toll these prolonged court are have on all those involved, and where might this all end.
