Rachel Notley’s NDP has fully embraced illegal anti-pipeline protestors trying to hold BC’s Coastal GasLink project hostage contrary to court orders. 

In a statement that totally disregards the unanimous support from democratically-elected Indian band councils, the Alberta NDP wants to prevent the LNG pipeline from being completed. 

In a Facebook post, the New Democratic Youth of Alberta revealed how the party passed a motion endorsing the illegal protests at its provincial council. 

“For the ANDP to express its solidarity with Wet’suwet’en First Nation, denounce the violence enacted against members of Wet’suwet’en First Nation and land defenders by the RCMP, and to call on the BCNDP provincial government and the federal government of Canada to immediately withdraw the RCMP from Wet’suwet’en territory and halt the Coastal GasLink pipeline project until the free, prior and informed consent of the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs is given,” the motion said. 

A small group of unelected hereditary chiefs have tried to bully elected Indigenous councils and the BC government into preventing pipeline development in the province. 

Even though every elected First Nations along the pipeline’s route have signed agreements and endorsed Coastal GasLink, a group of radical environmentalists have waged a campaign of blockades and sabotage at the pipeline’s worksite. 

The RCMP recently moved into the area and arrested a number of the far-left protestors after cutting off road access to the pipeline workers, preventing them from receiving food or water. 

Authorities were enforcing a court order that declared the blockades illegal and confirmed that the pipeline’s construction could be completed. 

The Alberta NDP’s support for clearly illegal actions should concern Albertans. It could indicate that if elected into power, Notley is dead set on siding with radical protestors and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s plan to kill Alberta’s energy industry. 

When completed, the BC LNG pipeline will provide thousands of jobs and significantly boost Canada’s ailing economy. Not only will the entire country benefit from the pipeline but also every First Nation along its route.
