Trampling Wet'suwet'en rights?

Dear Editor:

I am not certain, but I believe the Wet'suwet'en Nation rights are being trespassed on; as this is "their Treaty Land" and sovereign territory.

So how does a panel of British Columbia judges, in 2020, justifiably take away those rights? This is not a good situation, and it certainly is not reconciliation. Furthermore, it is reminiscent of a situation that took place 146 years ago, (1874) with the intrusion of white prospectors and settlers on a Sioux reservation in the sacred Black Hills of South Dakota. Back then, it was for the yellow gold ...today it is pipelines.
