Premier Christy Clark visited the northwest yesterday, making stops in Kitimat and Smithers.
While she met with a number of groups, she declined to meet with representatives from the Office of the Wet’suwet’en.
John Ridsdale is a Wet’suwet’en hereditary chief and with the office.
He says not only was it a matter of not meeting with them for official business, Premier Clark had also broken protocol.
Ridsdale says they were also informed the premier made no acknowledgment of the territory or the people.
He calls into question the BC Liberal party’s sincerity in having two First Nations candidates in the northwest.
Ridsdale also wonders if they were snubbed because of their stance on certain development projects in the region.
