While he was unlawfully arrested by the RCMP, Chief Dsta’hyl truck was filled with a big bag of rock and dirt by CGL workers. No stranger to construction work himself, Chief Dsta’hyl dumped the material right back.
“We’re dealing with a snake with no head. CGL, LNG Canada, Enbridge – none of them have top executives come and talk to us and negotiate with us,” stated Dini ‘ze Dsta’hyl. “Our goal is to have CGL remove all of the pipe… and reclaim all of the Likhts’amisyu territory, on both ends, that they did so much degradation to.”
Following the decommissioning of the excavator, Coastal Gaslink complied with the Hereditary Chiefs’ eviction notice within the Parrot Lake area and removed all remaining heavy equipment.
On January 15th, 2020, Hereditary Chief Dsahayl encountered CGL security and surveyors from the McElhanney Engineering Company surveying the right of way for the Coastal Gas Link Ltd pipeline company on Likhts’amisyu territory.
