To show the other side of the story, I travelled nearly 100 kilometres through the British Columbian bush to get to the actual area where #CoastalGasLink is laying down pipe.
I bring tasty McDonald's donuts to the hard-working people working on the project. They've been hit by hard times recently, with major work outages following pipeline delays. The job is a thankless one, especially considering how much work they put into protecting the environment, and restoring it once they leave.
In this video I'll show you what the pipeline — set to carry natural gas from Dawson Creek to a facility near Kitimat — actually looks like, and it's far cry from how the Office of the Wet'suwet'en treat their own campsite blockades.
