MONTREAL — Twenty-eight years after the Kanesatake Mohawk First Nation squared off against police during the Oka Crisis, the community’s grand chief has not ruled out barricades to prevent TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline from being built in its territory.
“It’s possible because it’s been helpful in the past,” said Serge Simon. “At the moment, this isn’t our strategy, but it could happen.”
According to the planned route, the pipeline will pass through the northern part of Kanesatake in Quebec.
