RCMP Invasion of We'suwet'en Territory Breach of Rule of Law

RCMP Invasion of We'suwet'en Territory Breach of Rule of Law

Episode 33, is based on an article I wrote for Canadian Dimension Magazine back in April about Canada’s so-called “rule of law” invasions of our territories. Specially, we are talking about the RCMP invasion of Wet’suwet’en Nation territory back in January 2019. This is an especially important incident because it can and will happen again. The bitterly ironic thing about this incident is that the RCMP and federal government defended the action as though it was supported by Canada’s “rule of law”. But in fact, their acts are prime examples of breaches Canada’s ‘rule of law’.
