#MohawkMembers; #Wet'suwet'enPipeline; #92ViaTrainsCancelled; #Demonstration
British Columbia, Feb 11 (Canadian-Media): It was stated by Tyendinaga Mohawk members that a five-day shutdown of passenger and freight rail traffic through eastern Ontario in support of Wet'suwet'en pipeline opponents won't end until the RCMP leaves the territory of the Wet'suwet'en, media reports said.

A court order was enforced, by RCMP last Thursday, against those blocking construction on the Coastal GasLink pipeline in Northern B.C. but the demonstrators were undeterred and said that their goal would not change.
"It's a piece of paper in our eyes, another tree cut down so you can hand it to us," said Tyendinaga Mohawk member Jacob Morris.
"I'm not worried one bit."
The demonstration has caused the cancellation of 92 Via Rail trains affecting over 16.000 passengers on one of Canada's busiest rail corridors connecting Toronto to Montreal.
