So yeah, for the last while there's been blockades at the edge of a First Nation to prevent a pipeline going through virgin wilderness. This weekend the RCMP and oil company reps invaded the territory and shit kind of hit the fan up here. Rail corridors in other reserves and in cities have been blockaded in protest, smaller towns have followed suit holding demonstrations, a couple of ports have been facing labour disruptions. First off, here's the wikipedia for some basic info. But the last decade has seen an explosion in awareness of past injustices to native peoples. This is a continuation of IdleNoMore, itself having risen from the ashes of Occupy. People my age remember the Oka and Ipperwash as well... Indigenous land claims vs Fossil resources is likely going to shape the discussion for the next few years here.
