Thousands of people are expected to rally in soldarity with the Wet’suwet’en chiefs at Queen’s Park Saturday afternoon. This comes a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called for an end to the blockades across the country.
Eve Saint, daughter of a Wet’suwet’en hereditary chief, who was arrested by RCMP during the recent protests, will address the crowd.
The rally will begin at Queen’s Park at noon and will continue on to City Hall for a giant round dance.
The Wet’suwet’en chiefs have called for the removal of the remote RCMP office and an end to patrols on their territory, as well as ceasing the construction of the Coastal GasLink pipeline.
