The show opens with a quick review of the upcoming supreme court decision on the lack of consultation with Chippewas of the Thames First Nation regarding the line 9 pipeline. We then shift to the climate change induced fires in BC and Indigenous defiance to evacuation orders, including Secwepemc demands for pipeline shutdowns, and Tl’etinqox defiance to evacuate despite threats from the RCMP of seizing children, and successful defense against the fire.

While sticking with pipelines, we jump to the climate change fueled fires raging across the western turtle island, first with a vancouver.mediacoop.ca posting laying out the demands from the Working group on indigenous food sovereignty that Kinder Morgan shut down the oil and gas pipelines running through Secwepemc lands.

After Ancient Grains cover of The Rebel Spell's Last Call, we read an article from APTN news where the members of the Tl’etinqox First Nation defied Canadian government orders to evacuate their reserve to defend it against he raging fires. Chief Joe Alphonse, told APTN that officers from the RCMP threatened the First Nation that the Ministry of Children and Family Services “remove all the children” if the Indigenous community did not evacuate. Also worried their infrastructure would never be rebuilt, the Bonaparte Indian Band also defied evacuation orders to successfully fight off the fire from destroying the community.
