Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs say they won't meet with Crown Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett and BC Indigenous Relations Minister Scott Fraser until a small, mobile RCMP detachment is removed from their land.

That is one of the talking points in discussions aimed at bringing an end to rail and road blockades.

The RCMP says discussions are underway on next steps.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe will hold a conference call with the rest of the premiers today and is criticizing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for not ending the blockades.
