B.C. and federal government officials are tentatively set to meet with provincial Indigenous leaders in the hope of ending an anti-pipeline rail blockade that has stalled travellers and choked Canada's economy.
Premier John Horgan responded to a letter from a Gitxsan leader today, saying the government wants to meet with chiefs of the Gitxsan and Wet'suwet'en Nation over a rail blockade in New Hazelton.
Indigenous Relations Minister Scott Fraser says he will represent the provincial government at the meeting with chiefs, and federal Crown Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett will also attend the meeting.
