Canadian police established an exclusion zone and are restricting access to Indigenous land in B.C. where Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs are leading the protection of the land and halting construction of the Coastal GasLink pipeline. Mainstream media and tribal members bringing in essential supplies were turned back at the roadblock on Monday, with temperatures at camp minus 35 degrees. The RCMP denied media and tribal members are being blocked in a public statement, but the facts were documented by those present.
