Wolastoq Grand Council Chief Ron Tremblay, Wolastoq clan grandmother Alma Brooks and a dozen settler allies met with Fredericton MP Matt DeCourcey on the morning of Monday, Jan. 14, 2019 in his downtown Fredericton office to extend their support for the Wet’suwet’en land and water protectors. Tremblay presented a letter to DeCourcey and the Trudeau government calling for recognition of traditional governments.

I strongly advise you to reconsider your position to advance the gas pipeline through the non-ceded homeland of Wet’suwet’en People. By doing so you will demonstrate a true nation-to-nation relationship based on recognition of rights, respect, co-operation, partnership and fulfill your promise that no relationship is more important to you and to Canada than the one with Indigenous Peoples.
