But Trudeau won’t listen.
He doesn’t like strong women who talk back.
Wilson-Raybould, now an independent MP, called for Trudeau to fly to B.C. to get personally involved in meetings, a cooling-off period in B.C. during which construction would cease and the RCMP leave the area, and the immediate tabling of long-promised Indigenous land rights and self-governance legislation.
Wilson-Raybould also made a plea to the Wet’suwet’en to take responsibility for providing clarity to Canadians about who speaks for a community that Canadians and governments understand is divided.
Wilson-Raybould was especially critical of Justin Trudeau’s failed promises.
Canada has known for decades “what needs to be done,” said Wilson-Raybould. “But here we are, yet again, in a moment of crisis because the hard work was punted.”
…She said the prime minister and his colleagues know this, “So please look in the mirror and ask yourself why?”
“Let us be honest — the prime minister has to learn to take responsibility,” said Wilson-Raybould.
She suggested Canadians have learned “the true history and the need for fundamental change” yet Trudeau has done little but talk.
