debate over the crisis sparked by support of the hereditary Chiefs in BC opposed to a natural gas pipeline running through what so itand territory Via Rail is preparing to resume some passenger service in southwestern Ontario but as abigail Beeman reports in our top story tonight the dispute is still far from over the rail blockade near Belleville Ontario still standing after nearly two weeks I know that people's patience is running short we need to find a solution and we need to find it but the Prime Minister does not yet have one to offer and the leader of the official opposition slammed him for that standing between our country and prosperity is a small group of radical activists many of whom have little to no connection to First Nations communities I think what he said was a so divisive that it rises to love racism the Prime Minister continues to call for peace and constructive dialogue Ottawa has been offering a face-to-face meeting with some of the wet sweat and hereditary chiefs in BC this has to be their invitation Minister Miller said that there is not a lot of trust and there is a an ongoing difficulty they told me they want to create their own approach to formalise discussions with the federal provincial governments the crown and they need to be given that time the

to choose their own path there could be options like peacekeepers like their own tribal police but that can come from themselves one grand chief believes if the protests continue they will become self-defeating Serge Otzi simon says indigenous people too will suffer from potential propane or food shortages do we look at the rail blockades as having served its purpose for now I'm simply pleading with these with the protesters that have you made your point yet as the government and Industry understood I think they did but to show how divisive this issue is for suggesting the blockade should end Simon has been pad locked out of his own band council office with calls for him to resign Abigail the debate over the pipeline has sure spilled over into the political realm in Ottawa well Robyn Tuesday night MPs are holding an emergency debate called for by the NDP and the bloc québécois as an example of how divisive the politics are both among indigenous people and here elected parliamentary politicians this afternoon Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held a meeting with opposition leaders but he didn't invite the official opposition leader conservative Andrew Shearer Trudeau's office said the Conservatives are only offering quote force and aggression as a solution Shearer says the meeting was a distraction from Trudeau's inaction Robyn Abigail Beeman in Ottawa you heard an Abigail story one grand chief with a strong opinion on the ongoing blockades he wants protesters to...

step aside here's more of his message to them the blockades doesn't mean that you surrender like I said a wall of it doesn't mean we're gonna just lay down and let them kick us a kick us around no but he would show compassion along with the strength other people are suffering across the country because of this blockade and not just non-indigenous the indigenous people as well shortages in propane and probably food supplies are gonna are gonna start getting critical if this continues so it will be a self-defeating purpose to continue on with the blockade so I'm hoping that reason and peace are going to prevail and that the message is going to continue on there was also a message today for the people calling for police intervention one Grand chief spoke about past mistakes and the need to learn from history to those people who are quick to pull the pin and to to come down hard or demand that hard things it's 30 years ago since since the what they called the oka crisis it's not that long ago with the camp paper washed and people you wrote that and use that as a as a reminder to themselves we should use restraint nobody wants to see that again you've heard mentioned there of oka and if ur wash both are examples of the need for peaceful negotiation here's a reminder of what happened oka unfolded in 1990 the small village in Quebec became a flashpoint when the mayor announced plans for a golfcourse expansion and condo development project on...
disputed land that included a mohawk burial ground protestor set up a blockade to stop construction crews and for months they refused to budge in july 1990 the mayor called in provincial police to tear down the blockade that sparked chaos gunfire was reported from both sides and a police corporal was shot and killed solidarity protests continued until Quebec called in the Army in August protests ended in September and the development project was eventually canceled but the land has still not been transferred five years after oka in 1995 another conflict over land unfolded this time at a fur wash Provincial Park in Ontario at issue was the stony point reserved which the federal government took in the 1940s for use as a military camp the kettle and stony point First Nation repeatedly asked for the land back but with little movement they grew frustrated in September 1995 protesters occupied a per wash provincial park the Ontario Provincial Police were called in and violence unfolded on September 6 of that year a protester Dudley gorge was killed an inquiry later found significant problems with police and government response in 2015 the First Nation accepted a 95 million dollar settlement from the federal government which included the land the Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador is adamant his decision to resign has absolutely nothing to do with scandals inside his Liberal Party sources suggest white balls performance has fractured the caucus and cabinet but ball says that's...

Hyde says rusty colored Erica's gentle formation may solve the puzzle this actually matches is the the simulation predictions for a more gentle collision so this really changes how we understand planet formation Erica a small object that represents a giant leap in our understanding of planets everywhere meantime New Horizons has 10 to 20 years of power left and is now on its way deeper into the Kuiper belt to learn more about the beginnings of our solar system Eric Sorensen
