Ten-Year-Old Blockade on Redtop Road

by Amy Miller, Remy Huberdeau

A two-person logging road blockade in Wet'suwet'en territory at Babine Lake, near Smithers, BC, aims to protect "this piece of wood," the last stand of intact forest on Wet'suwet'en traditional territory. Its transfer to the province—following 10 years of Indigenous opposition and government inaction—has put the property in the hands of Canfor, a lumber and pulp company.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
