Almost weekly there are statements made by the anarchists that come from the so called Gidimt’en Camp. Each incident by itself is not important enough to make a headline, however anyone following their antics will seriously have to question if these people are soft core terrorists. Its time we started tracking these attacks on the Canadian way of life, but before we do I want to make a special note of the most important fact. This is NOT the actions of the real Gidimt’en clan but rather mostly non aboriginals acting in the name of a few radical and not necessarily even Wet’suwet’en Nation. Sadly the Liberal media keeps telling Canadians that the Wet’suwet’en nation is behind this and that is patently untrue.
We will update this page with a new date each time we add new observations, so you can read backwards (by date) some of the things the press will not share with you.

These fraudsters are at it once again. Using old footage from summer or spring to sell another lie. Note its still spring or summer in the video.
Look at the time and date stamps on this screenshot.

With most of the anarchist road warriors out of commission due to the criminal contempt charges they had to face yesterday in court, we have yet to hear what decisions were handed out, and what was postponed to another date. So tit for tat, the radical left wing media, in this instance the Tyee (the left wing rag) is written by none other than Sonia Furstenau, leader of the BC Green Party and the MLA for Cowichan Valley. She was one of the imported ““Land Defenders” or just plain “Shit Disturbers?” who made an appearance here for the cameras back on July.
If lies were allowed to be exchanged for cash, she would not need to ask for a single donation for her election campaign fund, in fact she likely could fund her own campaign, the provincial and federal campaigns on those lies.
Quote from Sonia Furstenau, “As I write this, salmon are spawning in that river. Countless eggs — an entire generation of salmon — have been laid in the riverbed gravel. And Coastal GasLink is drilling a massive borehole within 12 metres of those salmon eggs”
So lets get a few facts straightened out, the pipe is 11 meters below the river bed, and she claims the eggs are 12 meters from the drill. So who moved all the salmon eggs over the drill site location? This is the kind of absurd information being pedalled by left wing media without considering the quality of the information or abandoning truth itself just to take a swipe at the legitimately operating business who for the most part is in compliance with the strictest environmental codes issued on this planet.
Clearly the Green Party, or for that matter even the Tyee could not care about First Nations, they only use/abuse them as long as they tow the Eco-cult line.
Quote from Sonia Furstenau, “Meanwhile, the government has handed the LNG industry billions in subsidies.” Really now? Is that like your salmon eggs story of less than 1 meter from the pipe?
What about the thousand and thousands of salmon filmed by the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition (SWCC) that are close to 10 kilometres upstream of the drill site? Seriously Sonia are you counting on citizens being too stupid to see you are lying through your teeth, but the smile looks great.
Sonia why could you not post all the truth rather than clipping a small chunk of truth, the (LNG) industry in British Columbia could create 96,550 new jobs, boost total wages in Canada by over $6 billion, and increase Canada’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by $11 billion every year. Part of your lie exists in not explaining that most of your so called subsidies come with a major return to citizens via jobs, taxes and other benefits, so the subsidy is actually an investment.
The Coastal GasLink (CGL) pipeline project will supply natural gas to the lowest GHG-intensive liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in the world, not to mention it is also huge economic boon for both B.C. and Canada and has the support of all elected First Nations councils along its route. As of October 2020, CGL had awarded $979 million in subcontracts to local B.C businesses, 85 per cent ($874 million) of which was to Indigenous-owned businesses. An estimated $20.88 million in annual property tax benefits will support community services such as fire protection, policing, schools, hospital districts and waste management.

Typical failure on the part of media to do their homework, and typical of anarchists to bend the truth even further. Gidimt’en Checkpoint is actually the page that is run by Jennifer Wickham who is really the person speaking here. The order simply states that violations may not continue, and that CGL is required to abide be the original agreement. All the rest his Jennifer Wickham and her fantasy that its an order of a shut down, nothing of that sort took place.
The Vancouver Sun is so desperate to get a story out they have no interest in lessening the impact by digging for the truth. “Coastal GasLink in hot water over pipeline environmental violations” Not really. The truth is the Environmental Assessment Office does very little research, in almost every instance where an infraction occurred, it was self reported by Coastal GasLink so here goes my challenge to mainstream media. “Prove me wrong”
From the very beginning what made this protect so much more acceptable to First nations is that CGL would pay for its own investigators who would monitor and report to CGL its findings. This is not an inside secret, its public knowledge and was posted so from the start. If there is an infraction CGL immediately reports to the Environmental Assessment Office who in turn files a report. Yes CGL has made mistakes and it always works hard at correcting them at their own expense.

Matt Simmons is a “so called” journalist for the The Narwhal, bear with me because its important that we truly understand what is going on here. Going back a few years they had a different name, in order to hide from the scams they were caught doing they re-branded themselves from DeSmog Canada as a non-profit news magazine that has the same mission as DeSmogBlog.
“Desmogblog controversies include the 2009 “Climategate” email scandal, in which one of its writers admitted the blog is more about public relations than science. Also, in 2012, Desmogblog posted internal documents stolen from the Heartland Institute, a free market think tank which has specialized in climate change science.”
“A 2014 press release by Friends of Science, a group that believes climate change is a function of nature rather than man, reported that DeSmogBlog funders include Tides Canada Initiatives, and the Endswell Foundation, a Canadian Charity and predecessor to Tides Canada.“
On the issue of credibility as a journalist let me quote very credible journalist Ian Harvey regarding embedding with the blockaders.
“Claims they are journalists are suspect. I have been a journalist for 45 years and I would not sign on under these conditions.
These are the restrictions the “journalists” were working under. In which case they were no longer journalists but in fact PR agents IMHO.
The website also maintains a “Climate Disinformation Database” of individuals and organizations that question climate change activists.
We the taxpayers are paying for this sleazy excuse they call journalism. The Local Journalism Initiative (LJI) this is a federal initiative that is being sorely abused in this instance.

Its sad but also so typical of the anarchist road warriors to exploit a tragedy to promote their cause. The greatest problem Molly & Jennifer have is finding actual Wet’suwet’en members willing to head out to the front lines and live in pallet city. So they need you to hate police and send them more money. As for what happened to Jared is a tragedy, he was killed for failing to surrender to an arrest warrant. Using a knife on police could get you killed, this is horrible exploitation by the anarchist road warriors, misleading readers and a false claim in order to self profit from the blood of a Wet’suwet’en member who went seriously astray. Crime does not pay and it could cost you your life if you take up arms against the law.
From the RCMP comes this statement. (full statement)
“A short time later the suspect vehicle was located in a parking lot in the 2000 block of the South Island Highway in Campbell River. A police officer boxed in the vehicle and then a confrontation occurred between the suspect and the police officer, who had a Police Service Dog. During the interaction the Police Service Dog was stabbed and killed, and the suspect was shot and was pronounced deceased on scene. The Police Dog Handler was also treated for a knife wound. No other persons were injured.”

It breaks my heart to report this, but considering its out there in social media by radical activist Kris Statnyk, a man who holds a law degree and re-posts smut should be disbarred, what kind of lawyer re-posts malicious gossip about a Wet’suwet’en unless he himself is sick and demented? Kris Statnyk is quoting Cynthia George Taha who in a comment calls her own mother “demented” (yes we have a copy of that statement) Cynthia George Taha may well have been born here, but has not lived here in the past 21 years. Despite holding a nursing degree, she is not looking after her mother, and it is only her anger and bitterness towards her mother that is at the root of her attacks on her mother. Cynthia blames her mothers caregiver (also her sister) and most of Rita’s family readily admit that Rita does not have dementia as per Cynthia’s accusations.
Cynthia George Taha readily admits (complains) that she is not welcome by her family (go figure) but for Kris Statnyk to exploit family divisions for his own anti industry ideals should be grounds to have his law degree revoked. The screenshots below are a “desperate” attempt to try discredit Rita George for daring to stand up to these anarchists, that are intentionally sewing divisions among the Wet’suwet’en family. Why would he even care, he is not a member of the Wet’suwet’en people?
Members of her family are quite adamant that Rita is very much in control of all her faculties and is sharp as a wit. Maybe the mainstream media should interview her again so she can repeat the truth she has already spoken. We found it important to challenge what they were saying in social media in order to counter their sick accusations. A new low even for these anarchists.
Cynthia George Taha, who does not even live anywhere near here, did not supply a shred of evidence that Rita George received money from Coastal Gaslink, its pure fabricated malicious lies that she cannot substantiate. Worse was a member of the bar propagating these lies via social media.
Without a doubt I am sure that Rita is like most parents, and continues to love her prodigal child, something most parents can relate to, its ever so sad its come down to this by these hate filled anarchists. I would encourage anyone in BC to file a complaint to the The Law Society of British Columbia regarding “conduct unbecoming” of a member of the bar.
“conduct unbecoming the profession” includes a matter, conduct or thing that is considered, in the judgment of the Benchers, a panel or a review board, (a) to be contrary to the best interest of the public or of the legal profession, or (b) to harm the standing of the legal profession;
Cynthia George Taha married a Palestinian and immediately got involved in protesting, it seems to be her personal niche, so coming on board with the radicals on the Morice was a no-brainer. For those of you who do not know the man she is protesting for, it is Khader Adnan Mohammad Musa is a senior member of the Palestinian Islamist organization Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and was prisoner in Israel. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) is listed as a known Terrorist Entity by Canada.

Today’s update is not new news, but rather many people asked us about the video, so today we are sharing a video that is now online, where the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition (SWCC) confronts the RCMP and CGL security at the Morice river, by floating down from Morice Lake. They made and own this video.
They fully used (abused) the fact Travis Pete is a Wet’suwet’en by the radical left wing press. The video speaks louder than those words as you see first hand he is the listener while Anissa Watson argues for their organization. As we said in our report, they were allowed through to the smokehouse to check on it, despite that to our knowledge Travis Pete has never previously been to that smokehouse but needs to do so now, a common game played by radicals, using we, “me and our people” to justify their attempts to gain access. He should be challenged to prove he has ever been there before, and that he used it before, because this was the door used to do more vandalism to CGL equipment.
We have reason to believe that the one member not publicly identified was Brian Huntington “who is one of the Youth on Water trip leaders and supports all aspects of running a safe, well organized and kick-ass program“. The others were “YOW/WOW Program Manager:” Anissa Watson “volunteering with the Youth on Water program for a couple years before SWCC scooped her up to direct the entire program.” Then we have the two “youth” Travis Pete “(Safety Kayaker)” and “River Guide” Shania-Rayne Michell also a Wet’suwet’en.
Quotes were from the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition (SWCC) website. Note at the 00:51 mark of the video there is another inflatable boat/raft used by the 4th member of the team.

One of the primary complains for the real Wet’suwet’en Nation and the real members of the Gidimt’en clan is the level of interference by non aboriginals and aboriginals that have no business on Wet’suwet’en territory. This is one of two very powerful points the mainstream media ignores. The second fact is that CGL is a legal business, operation with legal permits, obtained under the highest standards for environmental protection in the world. Add to that there are onboard monitors insuring compliance by First Nations members who live on the pipeline path.
So why is the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition (SWCC) interfering with the drill site with its base of operations at the camp declared by police as the source of criminal activity? During recent days (while they were there) the lines that test the water quality of the river were deliberately cut. Was the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition (SWCC) directly involved in this act of sabotage?
That lady above is a member of the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition (SWCC) who floated down from Morice Lake, and its quite obvious their target the CGL drill site on the Morice River, considering their exit point was the very first access to the public road below the drill site, at the bridge by the Hooligans Hotel at the Unist’ot’en Camp. Also there were two more members of the SWCC. The other was Shania-Rayne Michell who works for the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition and Travis Pete who also works for the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition out of Hazelton. The last two are First Nations hired by the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition. The lady in the above photo is Director OF Program Execution for the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition her name is Anissa Watson (not a local and not an aboriginal)
Never mind that they did this with the intent of stopping at the legal authorized CGL drill site under the pretext of needing to go to the smokehouse (the one they intentionally built to obstruct the pipeline) The footage that they shot shows they intentionally went through spawning salmon, the video shows these salmon were being spooked during the critical time when they are spawning. by the filmaker who swam underwater to film them. Care about fish, I don’t think so, it was nothing more than a chance to get some propaganda footage, none of that footage was part of protecting the salmon. On a different note, these thousands of salmon we starting to decay (in a state of spawning), meaning they were no longer edible, can you imagine the levels of Giardiasis (beaver fever) in the water that they claim is so clean you can drink it?
Who funded this expedition? Someone did and you can bet Anissa Watson and Shannon McPhail know who funded it, doubt the filmmaker is on board for free. Funny how they fail to mention who that is.
At this point any usage of the smokehouse would have nothing to do with smoking salmon, it was merely an excuse to get closer to the drill site.
Keep in mind that it was around the same date the lines that test the water quality of the river were deliberately cut. Now if your asking how involved is the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition then check out the conversation by Shannon McPhail who must have signed off on this expedition. Shannon McPhail executive director of the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition (SWCC) check the link for more on her. More frightening is that she is on the board of directors of the Coast Mountain Collage with the ability to use her position there to bend the minds of the future generation.
Listen to her talk when she could very well be the brain child of this expedition. Why are outsider, non aboriginals so intent on shutting down a perfectly legal, legitimate, supported by all First nations project, and have such blatant disregard for spawning salon. Public funds are used because they need to protect a legitimate business from criminal activity. If you wish to reduce these costs, stop interfering with a project that is publicly endorsed. Just as you have a right to seek public paid protection when criminals are attacking you or your organization. For Shannon McPhail to accuse CGL of operating in an illegal way is blatant and outright slander, also illegal in Canada.

Smoke and Mirrors
Even the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs is playing identity games in order to hide that they represent some First Nations at the peril of other First Nations completely proving they are nothing more than a membership only club made up of multiple First nations but much more like a Golf Club that really to not represent the First nations of BC.
As Ellis Ross said “When you see an organization with an impressive name like the “Union of BC Indian Chiefs,” the “Assembly of First Nations” or the “Leadership Council,” its easy to think that, somehow, these organizations are the people in charge of Aboriginals. As a newly elected band councilor in 2003, I had to find out for myself that this wasn’t the case. There are representatives from communities who may attend these meetings; they might even be members. But there is no authority for these organizations to act on behalf of any communities – let alone represent Aboriginal rights and title interests.”
Ellis Ross is the former Chief Councillor for the Haisla Nation, and currently serves as the MLA for Skeena
Then we find ourselves with another new radical group? Have a look, its called Coast Protectors, here have a look. Recognize any of the faces?
On further research we found who owns the page.
We definitely have to agree with the position taken by Ellis Ross and here is why. We can be quite sure that the following First Nations are NOT represented by the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs, they are just another group of self elected people with ties to the Eco Cult Movement. The list below is almost every First Nation in Northern BC.
The Stellat’en First Nation, Saik’uz First Nation, Cheslatta Carrier Nation, McLeod Lake Indian Band, Saulteau First Nations, Kitselas First Nation, West Moberly First Nations, Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, Nadleh Whut’en Indian Band, Burns Lake Indian Band, Blueberry River First Nations, Halfway River First Nation, Doig River First Nation, Wet’suwet’en First Nation, Yekooche First Nation, Nee Tahi Buhn Indian Band, Skin Tyee First Nation, Witset First Nation, Nak’azdli Whut’en, Haisla Nation. all support the CGL natural gas pipeline.

Our first entry comes via a Twitter comment by a man who is First Nations and is also a member of the bar (Called to the bar: 2014 (BC)), meaning he is a lawyer for the radical Eco (Tides funded) West Coast Environmental Law. Its not the first time we questioned the behaviour of members of the bar In this case we will let him speak for himself, his name is Kris Statnyk is Gwich’in from the Vuntut Gwitchin community of Old Crow, Yukon. His wife Shawna and their children Armayah and Jackson are Gitxsan from the Lax Skiik (Eagle Clan) Wilp (House) of Sakuum Higookw.
Kris practices Aboriginal law, providing legal advice, advocacy and support to Indigenous peoples and organizations over a broad range of areas including the governance and management of lands, waters, and resources; negotiation and implementation of treaties, self-government agreements and other government-to-government arrangements; and development of laws and policies.
If indeed he is a member of the bar, his comments are a very serious accusation against the RCMP, I wonder if the bar would sanction him if he is unable to back up that claim?
