Helen Michelle says she is confident that the pipeline also has the support of the Wet’suwet’en people.

A hereditary chief in B.C. said that the few people protesting an LNG pipeline on their territory are not from her community and that her community fully supports the pipeline.

The Hereditary Chief of the Skin Tyee First Nation Helen Michelle said in a video that she is not sure why people are protesting the Coastal GasLink LNG pipeline given that the project has overwhelming local support. 

“I don’t know why they’re protesting,” she said.

“A lot of the protesters are not even Wet’suwet’en people, you see the young man falling trees he’s not Wet’suwet’en people.”
