Wet'suwet'en Pushed Between Rock and Very Hard Place
... but some feel there are worse evils than being poor.
CBC: At public meeting in Houston B.C., community members explain their support for the project
The CBC left out a word: "some". Some community members support the pipeline project.
CBC: Who is opposed?
I probably have no business saying this, but it seems very sad to me that some band members are putting financial gain ahead of their band's traditional values. Meanwhile, outsiders are expressing support for the hereditary chiefs:
Facebook: Worldwide Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en [land defenders]
I don't know if I should even be allowed an opinion on this matter, but it seems to me that a proper vote needs to be taken among the people directly affected, and the "worldwide" choosing of sides should cease and desist.
I'm bothered particularly by the "It's Going Down" lot. In my opinion, Marion Tiljoe Shepherd, despite the fact that she has a personal profit interest in the pipeline, is right when she says "it's none of their business". CBC
She's also quite right that the offsite events are organized by professionals. "It's Going Down" has its fingers in a lot of pies, and that smacks of Soros business to me, and/or others like him. Sow division, gain control is their modus operandus.

If First Nations people of Canada become divided amongst themselves, the government will feel, has indeed felt, perfectly justified in using force, and in ultimately legislating new "agreements" so that, eventually, there will be no "Native problem" at all.
I wrote in May 2019:
If you read the rest of what I wrote in that section, you may get a clue as to why fomenting division amongst First Nations peoples may well still be considered the path to ending the "Native problem" entirely. Like father, like son? Like Jesus Himself, who "came to bring division" for the greater good?
The RCMP, especially, need to go home and focus on cleaning up their own act:
YYC: Serving and Protecting Whom?
Then the people directly affected need to tell "It's Going Down" thanks very much but we can take it from here -- and sit down in good faith with their own people to thrash out the issue among themselves, then take a vote and honour the outcome. That way, at least the government will not have gained additional power over their existence.
They are grownups who should be prepared to honour the majority wishes, without coercion of any kind, and to live with the consequences.
But what do I know? I'm of Irish descent, a people known for their blarney. Nobody takes us seriously, though this may be a last chance for each of the Wet'suwet'en to honestly examine their own motives, to truly put first the long-term welfare of their brothers and sisters and their Mother Earth, and, "working as one"*, tell everybody else to get lost.
* The Hereditary Chiefs reiterate their mission: “We are proud, progressive Wet’suwet’en dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of our culture, traditions and territories; working as one for the betterment of all”.
