"I come from residential (school), I come from the '60s Scoop", said Joseph, 61. "And that's not right".

They ordered the extraction of impediments within Wet'suwet'en region as the project gets started with a $6.2-billion dollar pipeline moving all-natural gas from the Dawson Creek region to Kitimat.

Hereditary chiefs of the Wet'suwet'en First Nation have reached a deal with the RCMP to allow a natural gas company access across a bridge that had been blocked in their territory.

Headlined "This is Not Over", the statement says that the Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs - who control what activities take place on traditional territories - "have by absolutely no means agreed to let the Coastal GasLink pipeline tear through our traditional territories".

"This is our home, we should feel safe in our home", she said. "This will continue to be a waste of their time and resources as they will not be building a pipeline in our traditional territory".

Premier John Horgan said Wednesday when plans for the LNG export facility were announced in October the B.C. government concluded all the conditions for the project to proceed had been met.

We have just come through 150 years of oppression, assimilation, cultural genocide and the attempted annihilation of First Nations and it seems that Confederation policies will remain the same for the next 150 years despite hallow talk to build a new Nation to Nation relationship with the original people of Turtle Island by the demonstration of heavy handed actions that have now been observed around the world.

We stand in unity and solidarity with our British Columbia Wet'suwete'en brothers and sisters who courageously and determined to protect and defend fairness, justice, and the truth. We have unceded territory in every corner of the province.

Horgan said there are jurisdictional challenges facing B.C. that are different in every circumstance when it comes to aboriginal land claims and rights.

"Development of our project will be conducted according to rigorous environmental standards, including the recognition of specific indigenous values", Gateman said.

Carolyn Bennett, minister of Crown-Indigenous relations, said the federal government wants to do everything in its power not to have "that kind of conflict or images that really put back the journey of reconciliation".

"There is a whole series of Supreme Court (of Canada) decisions that say if there are established rights and title-holders, if you are going to infringe on those rights, then you have to justify and accommodate for it", he said.

Police officers were literally imposing a B.C. court order approved in favor of TransCanada Corp. subsidiary Coast GasLink.
