Today the entire @bcndp caucus clapped and hollered as Minister @BruceRalston boasted about being the gov't to welcome the largest #LNG investment in BC's history.

Shocking behavior for “climate leaders”, and shameful given the context of my question. 1/ #bcpoli #ClimateCrisis
They did this just after being told the following:

The national inquiry into #MMIWG found that man camps and resource extractive industries directly cause increased violence against Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2 Spirit People. 2/ #bcpoli #Reconciliation
2) Scientific studies have demonstrated birth defects, cancers, and asthma in communities near fracking.

3) Methane is 28 times more potent by weight than carbon dioxide meaning gases leaked from #LNG production are as highly polluting as coal.

Had another interesting exchange with my former gas pipeline engineer friend this morning on #TMX & #CGL. You may recall he has high-level Cdn & internat'l experience designing/building pipelines. He's upset Canada would dump failing #TMX onto First Nations.. #cdnpoli #bcpoli
..Engineer: "First Nations groups are now competing to buy #TMX, but with the “repair” from the recent washout sitting on sharp rock, I assume, since they haven't shown us a new sand bed, the rush is on for the gov’t to get rid of it to the first buyer..." #bcpoli
...Engineer: "The Canadian govt needs a buyer with enough money ($25 billion) and is willing to take on the liability for both pipelines [old pipeline and new larger #TMX twinned line] when they fail... of course, the buyer won’t know that..." #bcpoli #cdpoli

In the wake of what appears to have been an impeccably coordinated attack on #CGL equipment two nights ago, liberal proponents of nonviolence have begun to cast doubt on the motives of the attack and to suggest that it was a false flag attack carried out by the RCMP. (1)
To be clear, we don't know the identity of the attackers and we don't want to. We express our unwavering solidarity with #Wetsuweten land defenders & their supporters who may face increased levels of state repression in the days & weeks ahead. We wish them unity & strength. (2)
The proposed pipeline corridors that run through the unceded territories of the Wet'suwet'en, Gitxsan, Secwepemc, & other Indigenous communities of so-called BC are some of the most important front-lines of the #ClimateCrisis in the world. The stakes are incredibly high. (3)

The supposed attack on a #CGL site in BC stinks worse than a 2-week-old rotting fish.
So for #cdnmedia who are too lazy to engage their brains after they're handed a police press release, I'm going to lay out all the puzzling bits, based on what we know so far. Long🧵
1. First and foremost is the timing. A violent attack immediately after the Emerg Act is enacted giving police extra powers to deal with violent protests. Also not long after CGL is forced to admit their project is haemorrhaging $$. This timing along makes this sus
2. MO - Up til now there has not been a single violent attack by anti-CGL land defenders. In every case where @Wetsuweten Chiefs have acted against CGL sites, they have provided advance warning, conducted their work calmly and in broad daylight, and any equipment that was...

.@MurrayRankinNDP knows the current conflict in the Wet’suwet’en has a root cause - the @bcndp’s policy decision to proceed with #LNGCanada and the #CGL pipeline. Period. 1/ #bcpoli #wetsuweten…
The @bcndp understands the conflict over land title, @MurrayRankinNDP himself referenced the SCC’s #Delgamuukw decision. Despite that they made a choice to work with some and not others. 2/ #bcpoli #wetsuweten
By the time everyone was invited to the table the pipeline was already deeply entrenched as the focal point of conflict. The @bcndp wanted #LNGCanada & #CGL pipeline and they chose to ignore the complex governance issues created by successive Crown gov’ts. 3/ #bcpoli #wetsuweten

There are 3 militarized struggles over pipelines unfolding in CAN/US: #CGL, #TMX, #Line3 - all led by Indigenous women. This work is critical to upholding Indigenous law, but also literally saving the planet. Massive legal fees are mounting with arrests. Pls support. Links below.
From @Gidimten: Thanks to a group of matching donors, the first $6,000 today will be matched, so pls donate & share.…

While the @bcndp gov’t struggles with the severe impacts of flooding that are a result of the worsening #ClimateCrisis they are diverting critical #RCMP resources into #Wetsuweten territory again to protect the gov’ts #frackedgas pipeline 1/ #bcpoli #LNG
When @geoffmeggs delivered the news to the @bcgreencaucus that the @bcndp were going to support the #CGL #frackedgas pipeline I asked him how they would deal with the long-established blockades on #Wetsuweten territory. He said it was under control. Clearly not! 2/ #bcpoli
The chaos in Crown-Indigenous relations has been created by a @bcndp gov’t whose words and actions are not aligned. Say one thing, do another. @MurrayRankinNDP was on the #Wetsuweten file since early 2020 when he was brought in to mop up the mess gov’t created. #FAIL 3/ #bcpoli

🧵Today, the @IEA released their 2021 World Energy Outlook which, for the first time, includes a scenario where the world actually meets a 1.5ºC climate target.

And, it has some big implications for Canada.
First, at the high level, the new report finds a massive gap between national climate policies and what needs to happen to "keep the door open" to 1.5ºC. At the global level, these pledges "close less than 20% of the gap" between where we are and where we need to be.
That means that across the globe, 2030 emissions targets are way too low, and that high emitting countries like Canada really need be stepping up their game.…

"LNG Canada workers complained about unsafe conditions prior to COVID-19 outbreak" @TorontoStar
Sounds like #SiteC too, based on employee reviews...… #covid19bc #bcpoli @BruceRalston @jjhorgan
@TorontoStar @BruceRalston @jjhorgan ."The outbreak at #LNGCanada started on Nov. 19 & there are now 54 cases. In the months leading up to the outbreak, workers raised concerns about #COVID19BC cleaning procedures in common areas, rooms & work spaces, prompting inspections by WorkSafe BC on Aug 28 & Oct 19." #bcpoli
@TorontoStar @BruceRalston @jjhorgan ..Get this: "The documents also reveal that a WorkSafe BC inspection of the #SiteC work camp’s sewage treatment facility in northeast BC on March 19 found the facility did not have a plan to sufficiently protect workers from pathogens, body fluids, human waste, mould & COVID-19."

Just attended an excellent #SiteC webinar put on by the N. American Megadam Resistance Alliance (NAMRA, @resistmegadams) - "Canada's Sinking Site C Dam" with brilliant presentations by @sarahcox_bc @candacebatycki @Norm_Farrell. Watch it here:… #bcpoli
@resistmegadams @sarahcox_bc @candacebatycki @Norm_Farrell ..Some highlights from today's international Zoom event on #SiteC: @sarahcox_bc noting the difference between the US & Canada/BC in terms of access to information: the US supplies info immediately; BC govt can take many months, a year, sometimes refuse entirely. #bcpoli #cdnpoli

For anyone wondering how shitty cgl “consultation” was. There’s this report. Cgl dupped Wet’suwet’en into telling territory stories and calling it consultation. Including my late grandpa wahtaghet.

#Wetsuweten #WetsuwetenStrong #CoastalGasLink #bullshit #cgl
This report even includes a story of the kweese war trail that was bulldozed over. That story/area wasn’t mentioned in the mitigation plans.
Cgl used a Wet’suwet’en contractor to take elders on a paid trip onto the territory without telling them it was going to be used for consultation. The contractor emphasized the money aspect and to just take it.
