‘We want a future, not a pipeline’

By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

The Indigenous Cultural Alliance (ICA) group at Bishop’s University recently created a banner in support of the Wet’suwet’en people protesting the TransCanada Coastal GasLink Pipeline project in British Columbia. The banner is currently hanging up on the front of Divinity House on the university’s campus. Shawna Chatterton-Jerome, one of the Leads of the ICA and Turtle Island Intern, stated Wednesday afternoon that the creation of the banner was a group effort on part of the ICA to bring awareness to the situation currently taking place in B.C. “We chose the statement ‘we want a future, not a pipeline’ because we are all students studying at university and we are here for a better future. It goes with the university setting.” See full story in the Thursday, March 12 edition of The Record.
