Pipelines and broken promises fill Trudeau’s Kamloops town hall

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s first town hall of 2019 was just a nine hour drive from the Unist’ot’en camp where hereditary chiefs were negotiating a peaceful end to a decade long barricade of the Wet’suwet’en territory.

Despite being that far down the road, the issue of pipelines, and broken promises sounded throughout the night from Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples at the event.
