Should add...the Unist'ot'en proposed a different route through their territory, one that wouldn't go through the mountain area they are trying to protect.
The cities of Smithers, Telkwa, and Houston have been built on their unceeded territory, along with farms, massive logging and mining operations...with no compensation or taxation going their way. This one valley system is a small percentage of their traditional territory which remains close to pristine.
It's just over the mountains from where I live.
