Wet’suwet’en Call On Province To Close Pipeline Work Camps

Members of the Wet’suwet’en Nation are calling on B.C.’s public health officer to shut down work camps operating on their territory as COVID-19 numbers rise in northern B.C. In an open letter to Dr. Bonnie Henry signed by 22 Ts’ako ze’, or female chiefs, the women express “grave concern” over continued construction of the Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline through the region. Three work camps currently house close to 700 people on Wet’suwet’en territory, according to the pipeline builder’s November update.
