Red River Road Shutdown in Support of Wet’suwet’en People


THUNDER BAY – About 100 people gathered along Red River Road this afternoon to rally in support of the Wet’suwet’en land protectors in British Columbia.

As the group gathered, for this show of support, the decision was made for the walk to happen on Red River Road on the roadway rather than the sidewalk.

This is a growing trend that has happened in other city’s where people have taken to the streets in protest over the moves by the RCMP and government against the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs.

Thunder Bay Police Service was accommodating to the decision by the group and only sought to have them phone them once the walk started, and allow police to stop traffic on the road.

The messages of support will continue this week with more gatherings planned including a rally on the Nipigon River Bridge.
