“Anti-RCMP checkpoint” outside RCMP E division headquartes in Surrey

BY , Jan 17, 2020 1:46 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

Opponents of the Coastal GasLink pipeline construction across northwestern BC staged a protest, Thursday afternoon outside the RCMP's E-Division headquarters in Surrey.

Organizers say the event is an “anti-RCMP checkpoint”.

They say it mirrors the checkpoint set up on a forest service road in Wet'suwet'en territory outside Houston, and the Surrey checkpoint aims to enforce the “Indigenous rule of law.”

The B-C Civil Liberties Association and Union of BC Indian Chiefs both argue the police checkpoint and exclusion zone along the pipeline right-of-way in northwestern BC violate Indigenous law and Wet'suwet'en sovereignty.
