Talks continue to break impasse over pipeline construction in northern B.C.

RCMP enforced that part of the injunction on Monday and arrested 14 people.

He said representatives from Coastal GasLink were invited to the meeting to ensure they are on the same page, but emphasized it is not a deal with the company and the hereditary chiefs are opposed to a pipeline project planned on their territory by the company.

"We will do everything possible to facilitate and support those meetings moving forward, while maintaining peace and keeping everyone safe", the RCMP said in a statement on Thursday.

"It must be reiterated, we are adamantly opposed to this proposed project and that will never change, but we are here to ensure the safety of our people".

In an open letter posted on the company's website, Coastal GasLink president Rick Gateman wrote it was "unfortunate the RCMP were forced to take this action".

"I can say that our discussions were extremely respectful and extremely productive. As a result of these discussions we have worked out numerous details that are required for us to have free access across the bridge and beyond", said Gateman.

We have just come through 150 years of oppression, assimilation, cultural genocide and the attempted annihilation of First Nations and it seems that Confederation policies will remain the same for the next 150 years despite hallow talk to build a new Nation to Nation relationship with the original people of Turtle Island by the demonstration of heavy handed actions that have now been observed around the world.

The hereditary leadership of the Wet'suwet'en Nation spelled out some of the details of the tentative deal in a Facebook livestream on Wednesday from the healing centre of the Unist'ot'en camp.

Napoleon said the governments and companies negotiating with First Nations on everything from treaties to resource development must find ways to include and accept differing Indigenous governance and legal structures as part of their agreements.

Today's meeting was expected to discuss whether the camp can retain a gate at the site, which residents say is vital to their safety. It is too wide for the bridge and constitutes an obstruction, he added.

Members of the Wet'suwet'en Nation established the camps with fortified checkpoints, saying Coastal GasLink workers can only pass if they have consent from hereditary leaders.

TransCanada Corp. says it has signed benefit sharing agreements with the elected councils of all 20 First Nations along the pipeline route.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was visiting Kamloops on Wednesday and told the CBC his government has been working on reconciliation, but the dispute over the pipeline is "still an ongoing process".

"What that doesn't mean is backing Indigenous people into a corner so they don't have space to think or to disagree, which is kind of happening now", she said. "We didn't know if they were going to come storm this gate next".
