Land Protectors in Kahnawake Begin Third day of Support for Wet’suwet’en
Written by Paul on February 12, 2020
Exo train service is disrupted again today on the Candiac line as land protectors in Kahnawake continue to set up camp on the tracks at Adirondack Junction in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en Nation who were removed from their camp along a logging road to a Natural Gas Pipeline project. Quebec Premier says he is trying to avoid using police intervention to remove the camp in Kahnawake. Meanwhile Police are preparing to end a demonstration in Ontario by members of the Mohawks of Tyendinaga that has shut down traffic through one of Canada’s busiest rail corridors. Calling the situation “dire,” Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers yesterday warned demonstrators set up along CN Rail tracks near Belleville to clear the area or face a raid and arrests. Via Rail says it is cancelling all train service on the Montreal-Toronto and Toronto-Ottawa routes until the end of Thursday as a result.
