Rita George is a Wet’suwet’en Matriarch and hereditary sub chief who today is speaking out against the so called “solidarity” protests happening across Canada under her nation’s name.

You've seen it all over social media: Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs are united against the Coastal GasLink project. But are they?
Once again, the media isn’t even close to reporting a balanced view of the situation transpiring in northern British Columbia and seems disinterested in getting both sides of the story out to the public. Why is that?
