Deep Dive

Get to the bottom of something big.

The Wet’suwet’en Pipeline Fight, Then and Now

On the last day of 2019 a B.C. Supreme Court judge granted an injunction against protesters slowing the Coastal GasLink pipeline in Wet’suwet’en territory. For counter-opinions, read Judith Sayers, a lawyer and former chief of the Hupacasath First Nation, and hear from Wet’suwet’en hereditary Chief Na’Moks.

For a deeper dive, a good start is this Tyee explainer. Lately, The Guardian revealed the RCMP was primed to use ‘lethal force’ as it broke up protesters a year ago. Andrew Nikiforuk provides the historical big picture.

Tyee Insider

What we're up to. How to be involved.

Drumroll, please…

In December we invited Tyee Builders to enter for a chance to win an amazing hiking and rafting trip on the Tatshenshini River, courtesy of our friends at Canadian River Expeditions & Nahanni River Adventures.

Congratulations to the winner, James Smith from New Westminster, B.C.!

James had this to say about winning:

“I am very excited about this trip. Full disclosure: I am no outdoorsman. Which isn’t to say I don’t enjoy nature, but more remote excursions have seemed a bit daunting to me and that makes this trip perfect — having a guide to lead the way and take care of the details will let me enjoy what I’m most looking forward to, which is to learn about and appreciate the wildlife, landscape, and peoples of the Tatshenshini river. My wife will be joining me — she is much more outdoorsy and adventurous than I am, so this will be a great way for us to celebrate our tenth anniversary which also happens to be this summer.”

These summer pants sell bagels
(click to read in context)

In addition to shopping at thrift stores, I've been refreshing my wardrobe over the past few years through clothing swaps with friends and friends-of-friends. Two years ago I acquired a loose pair of black and white pants this way from a friend, who told me she used to wear them when she delivered bagels as a summer job (didn't even know that was a thing at the time, but now it makes total sense).

I still think about her selling bagels when I wear those strictly-summer/indoors-in-winter pants. Coincidentally this style of pant is in again, too, so I get compliments on my bagel pants, too.
