Excellent reading for those confused about 'Aboriginal title' and its role in the Wet'suwet'en stand-off. Documents acquired through Freedom of Information requests show how representatives of the extractive industry have lobbied the Canadian state to 'extinguish' Indigenous control over unceded territories in order to boost the 'certainty' of approval for massive industrial projects like Coastal Gaslink and the $40 billion LNG Terminal project that it's connected to.

As usual with the CBC, they've really gone out of their way to whitewash (pun intended) the story.

Gilfoil said his friend was kind and his political views have been deeply misunderstood.

"I know he has German heritage and he had a really big fascination with World War II-era history," Gilfoil said in an interview with CBC News.

"He collected a lot of Nazi, or National Socialist, memorabilia from that time and just kind of had a fascination with that time period.

"He never was overtly racist or anti-Semitic … he had an alternative perspective on that time."

Bull. Shit.

Anti-Racist Canada has this asshole's number. Turns out he was a member of Blood & Honour.
