The camp appeared not long after the Mounties moved in to enforce an injunction against members of Wet’suwet’en blocking Coastal GasLink construction. The Mohawks there have a long history of disrupting the rail line in protests. Many of the Mohawks at Tyendinaga have said that they’ll let trains roll again if the Mounties leave Wet’suwet’en territory. The potential for violence aside, there is little guarantee that other blockades won’t immediately replace them elsewhere. One that will continue much longer than the nation will tolerate the disruption and economic costs of the blockades.
