Last night I saw this breathless press release published by Trudeau’s CBC state broadcaster. (I think it’s a press release. I don’t think it’s news reporting.)
Wet'suwet'en chiefs, federal and B.C. ministers reach a proposed arrangement in pipeline dispute.
They reach a "proposed arrangement." That’s a weird choice of words.
I think normal words sound like: reach an arrangement. Or reach an agreement — that makes more sense. That’s a deal, a contract — an exchange of promises.
What’s a "proposed arrangement"? I don’t quite know, but the CBC said it.
If you click on the link, you get this story, which isn’t really any clearer, is it?
Wet'suwet'en chiefs, ministers reach tentative arrangement over land title but debate over pipeline continues
So now we have the word "tentative," instead of proposed. And now they’re saying the pipeline part isn’t agreed to.
Hang on. The Tweet said the proposed arrangement, whatever that means, was about the pipeline dispute. Those are the only words that have clear meaning there.
But then right there in the story, they say that it doesn’t cover the pipeline — the debate over the pipeline continues.
Wet'suwet'en hereditary leader says they remain opposed to the Coastal GasLink pipeline
Oh. So there isn’t a deal, or agreement, or arrangement, or contract, or treaty.
So what is it, exactly?
Federal Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett and British Columbia Indigenous Relations Minister Scott Fraser would not give details on the proposed arrangement, saying it first has to be reviewed by the Wet'suwet'en people.
So it isn't a deal, but it’s secret. And it would be reviewed by the Wet'suwet'en people.
But the Wet'suwet'en people have already agreed to the pipeline, as we've told you many times. Twenty out of 20 First Nations bands along the route. They even had referendums. It’s a signed contract.
But the Wet’suwet'en First Nation was not at this meeting. The guy who they were negotiating with, his name is Frank Alec. He’s calling himself “Chief Woos" now.
His LinkedIn page shows he’s just a lifelong member of what I call the Indian Industry — bureaucrats and lawyers and politicians who live off the government, live off the system, off endless meetings and complaints and hearings, who have monetized the political problems.
Frank Alec, a.k.a. Chief Woos, is a grifter.
According to Wet’suwet’en tradition, he’s not even a hereditary chief.
And he works with the fake First Nations, the Wet’suwet’en “office”, which isn’t an Indian band at all. In fact, it’s bought and paid for with Tides Foundation money out of California.
Fake chief. Fake consultation. Fake agreement. Fake Indian band. Fake news.
Why all the lying?
