Indigenous people have had their land taken away from since before Canada was formed. The government created treaties with the Indigenous people of Canada in bad faith and then when they were inconvenient, we did not honour them. This disrespect and mistreatment have continued to this day, with no better example being the TransMountain Pipeline. In 2019 while Justin Treadeu was giving a speech in an open house, reasserting his support of the Indigenous people, nearly 800km away, the federal police officers were storming a makeshift barricade and arresting 14 Indigenous protesters who were preventing demolition vehicles from entering the territory of the Wet’suwet’en nation. These Indigenous people were protesting against the new TransMountain pipeline that would run across their land. While this is just one example, there have often been cases of land belonging to the Indigenous population being used, as the cost is too high. A perfect example was In 1997 when the supreme court put an end to one of the longest-running legal battles in Canadian history, ruling that the Wet’suwet’en had effectively demonstrated clear title to their land only they could use it. Yet it cost them around $25,000,000 only to have a retrial called.



Raises legal defence funds to assist Indigenous peoples who enforce their rights and title to protect their traditional territories.
