Wet'suwet'en: A Nation Divided

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

A pipeline dispute on the remote Wet'suwet'en First Nation in British Columbia and subsequent solidarity protests and rail blockades have sparked a national crisis. While critics are calling for government to enforce the rule of law, a conflict over which laws to follow remains unresolved. Steve Paikin is joined by legal and political experts who discuss the complexities of this case, and what it means for reconciliation and Indigenous rights in Canada.
