"I suppose the question I have here though is how many more options the whatsoever tin hereditary chiefs have here. Seems like this is getting very close to the end of the line here. UNICEF start but in is near the end of the line now yeah absolutely I mean so it just passed into Stoughton is where coastal gasoline is. rain on construction schedule. Want to get in there to build up this this encampment area for for pipeline construction to happen this summer and so once they get free access to moved through that road. You know they're going to start doing the work that scheduled right now Abbott at the same time you know it's it's a big territory and the what's out today With those arrests that happened with free to Houston being arrested among others. They said you know we asked. We may be arrested but this is not over. It's hard to know what they plan to do. Okay and tell me you're free to Houston is oh so Frida is significant in all of this is sort of the longtime I spokes person at the student checkpoint site and now the healing center. We're not protest camp our home under coming to invade my home today and that gets my door and she is one of actually the named defendants in the initial court application that coastal gasoline put into the courts for this injunction so she and Smuggled Gum who's a hereditary chief within the nation were actually the two named defendants That that it went to court on this case and so people were glued to this livestream. That people were putting out on facebook today and sort of this connection kept cutting in and out. It's a remote area and they're using satellite and trying to livestream what was happening. You could see a group of women they were standing under this arch arch with fire and drumming and singing. All the awhile. Police were moving in on them so we heard that. RTP had serve helicopter members in behind the checkpoints and then they had rcmp on the bridge. Moving they're boxed in and these women just stood there drumming and singing and one by one. We're being taken away by police. And at the end as the arrests were being made Freda was was the last person standing there and when the by the time the police were approaching her. She wasn't drumming anymore. She was just standing there dancing and singing at the top of her lungs and was sort of quietly. Quietly led away by police singing as she went. Amen- you could see you're walking into the distance and in the back their red dresses lined up along this road which was a symbol for missing murdered indigenous women and girls so the symbolism of all of this was quite powerful for people who were watching and sympathetic of people who aren't probably like great finally But for those who are engaged in these actions you're across the country that was hugely symbolic and there was a gate at At UNICEF that's her leads in and it was some wooden structure and they're also images of a police cutting cutting through it and so from their side they'd necessarily see what they were cutting through but For moonstone and looking outward. Where'd you could see that? They had put a sign up. That said reconciliation. That was just sawed right down the middle as they took took apart gate so the symbolism right now of what is happening happening was was really poignant in watching that livestream and witnessing what was happening as as free to was the last person led away at least as far as I've seen so far by police and taken into custody and are we hearing anything from governments here the BC provincial government and end the federal government. Not A lot. I mean all leading up to this the government Your did attempt some deescalation stuff to NBC. And the chiefs and three intermediary with Nathan Cullen in the mix for bit and then those talks failed to come to any peaceful resolution and after that I am not aware of any further dialogue. They're having the province John Horrigan holding his first news conference of the New Year. There are agreements from the peace country to Kim with indigenous communities that want to see economic activity activity of prosperity. Take place all the permits are in place for this project to proceed. We'll be proceeding and the Fed seemed to be pointing back to the provincial government. Saying this is all within provincial jurisdiction. So this isn't about us and this is for BC to sort out. Okay and you mentioned Nathan. Cullen this is the former and EP. MP and what is the company thing about all of this I mean for coastal gas length. They they've maintained a long that they want to see a peaceful resolution and they also. I can't delay you know getting in that area and doing construction work. They have construction timelines to me. They have commitments to this pipeline built They have expressed disappointment -pointment at some points along throughout this process and the last number of weeks kept insisting that they were offering to meet with the hereditary chiefs and that that invitation has been rejected to time and time again by the hereditary chiefs. Who've said they have no interest in meeting with a proponent and they would only like to sit down and speak with decision makers at the federal and provincial?.

"Too I JUST WANNA step back here and distill the story with you for a moment. You and I've talked about this on the podcast before but but for those who are just coming to this or may need a refresher at the heart of this conflict is not just a pipeline. Right as you mentioned before it's about laws and about ownership of land. Tell me more about what this is all about. Yeah absolutely so I mean I think it's overly simplistic a stick to describe it as an anti pipeline protest camps and you know then other people who are pro pipeline. They were talking about a situation where there are many truths happening at the same aim time so yes it is true that the BC's Supreme Court in order granting an injunction for coastal gas link. It is true that the courts say under a case law or the common law system. You people who are impeding access to at this approved and permited pipeline project cannot keep walking them or and and Put in enforcement orders for the CPI two to empower them to arrest people if they didn't abide by that So December thirty first in two thousand nineteen was when the court the final ruling on this case or at least at the Supreme Court level when we arrested a year ago that was under an inch junction. So December thirty first comes now it is what is described as an interlocutory Tori injunction which just means it stands okay and so December thirty first rolls around in Stoughton is still very much built up. There's a new camp that's been built up at the forty four kilometer mark mark and then there's all anticipation of of enforcement actions and so the pipeline company. Said you know wants to get in there and and do its job in his standing. By this this court decision and It does have agreements with twenty first nations along the route of this pipeline elected. Chief Dan George Burns Lake first. Nation nations signed a benefit agreement with coastal gasoline. Twenty fourteen. But he's working towards equity ownership of the pipeline won't need any money from Ottawa anymore. We can run our our own businesses by ourselves under our own condition. So I think it's going to help a lot of first nations get out of poverty in the North End. That's where you see this tension between Green The colonial sort of system of governance imposed on indigenous people versus You know systems of government that have existed before Canada was was the thing so with the whatsoever and specifically they are still under the Indian act system and so their nation as they would find themselves has been broken up into six Indian enact bands all with their own chief counsel systems and five of those six bands did sign agreements with coastal gas link Which means they receive direct financial initial payments for it and they receive contracting opportunities but at the same time the whatsoever and hereditary chiefs are like no no no like you don't have authority Indian Act Band Council to make these types of decisions off reserve right and so because the pipeline doesn't go through any reserve land it's in the traditional territory royal the wet Soican nation which you know they do have weight when they say that they do have a Supreme Court of Canada decision behind them? We're talking about the Delta Mook Decision Right Dell Komo Kyya so and that's really seeing like the the lack of resolution from a from a Supreme Court of Canada decision from nineteen ninety-seven where the that gets an hereditary. Choose and so tim. Hereditary chiefs cl- together went to the court demanding sort of a ruling on their rights and title. And the court did. Confirm saying you know. Nobody ever signed a treaty with you. You've never seated or surrendered title your rights entitled to Your Land With Your traditional little territory and then up at the court couldn't say okay so now we say you have rights entitled to the slander particularly title. They punted it back to the whatsoever nation and and the governments in Canada. The Canadian governments to say you guys need to go in and figure this out and that still hasn't happened and I think that's really at the root of what we're seeing. Is this unfinished business of Nation Building and government to government relationships at a time when we're hearing so much talk about the United Nations Declaration on the rights of indigenous in his people Supporting first nations to be self determining So so for a lot of people who are taking action especially in first nations across the country. I think that's really where they're seeing this fight and at the same time there are people who are saying get this thing built their jobs on the line there billions of dollars on the line here with this project objects that went through the process and got all of the permits and approvals that it needed to do its work right. It's an untenable situation then true on both sides and also you know You mentioned the the UN Declaration on rights of Indigenous People. Were also talking about reconciliation a lot in in this country as well which is a question that has come up consistently through this controversy more troops Warren Beatty troops organs reconciliation and is at the center of these protests. That we're seeing around the entire country right now. Tell me a little bit about what we've been seeing the last couple of days. Ace Yeah we've been seeing Actions pop up all over the place for civil disobedience sit ins protests. I know here in uncover the you know the port Vancouver entrances were blocked Vancouver. Police release them numbers. They said there've been with thirty. Three arrests brass The delta porter was blocked railed blockades have been showing up. There's a sit in with indigenous youth who'd occupying at the front of the legislature and they. There are demanding that the CPI leave the area. And and I think at the same time maybe part of that unrest is that there isn't any clear clear resolution to this dispute as it stands you know with people dug in positions in in government in in the courts in all these things all these truths that are happening at the same time have created this scenario where we hear a lot of talk about people wanting a peaceful resolution to this but increasingly or you're continuously not really seeing how that may be possible if this project continues along that route and oh it. totten remained adamant in their position. Asian those arrested on Thursday and their supporters say despite the police action. They're not going anywhere because there are no way back. You can rest us. You can try to move us from the territory you can remove us from the territory violently.

"Hi Shantelle thank you so much for joining me today. Hi thanks for having me so I know that you just got back from the frontlines of this dispute and can you take me there. What's the scene been Lancaster? RCMP moves into enforce this injunction and clear the road road where protesters have set up camp blockades On the ground has been very chaotic where it's shifting very dynamic situation with a lot of police resources on site and then of course what tillerson hereditary chiefs and supporters who had had been dug in at a number of different sites along this forest service road that's subject to this Supreme Court injunction real heart in our minds. I've been looking at the images and videos that have come out of the standoff in the last several days. They're they're really really quite powerful. And can you describe some of them for me. Yeah there's been a lot of Chaos and and tense hence Tense moments out on that territory of police have moved into sort of a very deliberate Sort of climate or by kilometer can't can't buy camp enforcement actions and You know some of those images are people being arrested in the pitch black after the first wave of arrests happened at around four o'clock in the morning on Thursday as Victorian RPM the real issue December thirty first nineteen their images of of like big lines of of members of the RCMP's holding back people on the edge of the new police line to a Tuten. Elders are upset. They're not allowed to go into territory the consider. There's I never ever thought that we as we're told on people would ever be faced with such a crisis Sousse as we're facing today. Is this Canada or is it Syria. There've been videos of these tense confrontations between the whatsoever and supporters and police as things sort of shift and change hour by hour One of the moments that you know really I think aggravated things things for for the RCMP. Was Whim at this. One point on the the Forest Service Road Matola sports had toured without anybody noticing dissing parked all of their vehicles in this really chaotic scene. That you couldn't get across you couldn't drive made the road impassable and the police were trying to get out on the only road out of that area and came upon this scene of Mesli parked cars. They couldn't drive through and you know they there's a video of the rcmp a member of the the approaching. And saying you know if you don't get out of the way you're going to face arrest cultural processes owners okay right now. You're breaching the junction. We're helping understanding defending them. Well I just asked for station before you now you said you don't WanNa talk so I'm explaining to you that right now with his top and trying to give him a copy if the injunctions person standing there staring back at the police saying I don't know I need to copy the injunction sort of frustrated exchange where police walked away got back in their vehicles in you know in that particular moment. The police ended up getting Blocked from passing this road for hours so so lots of really tense exchanges Moments of enforcement. But then you know the weird contrast is that They're all this downtime where people are coaching. Their supporters have just been held at different for an exclusion zones by police and just Gathering and visiting with each other. And there's lots of hugs and laughter and singing and prayer and so. There's just like this very chaotic scene with these moments that seem so such a stark contrast to the the weight of. What's going on up here breath? What's up tell me a little bit about what it's like there? What the environment is like the Marines Forest Service road is just that it's Forest Service Road That sort of It's exits off highway. Sixteen which a lot of Canadians would know as the highway of tears And then it sort of curves off the highway sixteen and sort of snakes around alongside the Murray River and people refer to this The different sites where people have sort of set up permanent occupation sites or recent occupation sites as by kilometer postings. So you know there was one at the twenty seven kilometer mark. There was one at the thirty nine kilometer Lamad or market the forty four kilometer mark and Last in that line is at the sixty six kilometer mark and that's the longest standing of these Reoccupation sites the STOUGHTON wooden site. Our there is a land based healing center and so That is the last place where our CPA on Monday went in and started making arrests so they could clear the way so coastal gasoline and it's contractors can get back to work on pipeline construction. What is the significance of unison? Unison has been around for a really long time out on the territory. So it's It's at a strategic place where the unit Stoughton who are as a group within the WET SOICAN nation strategically set up a checkpoint dating back to two two thousand nine so over a decade now they started operating a checkpoint on this at bridge that crosses the Maurice River and Saying nobody can pass through this checkpoint. If you don't have the consent of the hereditary chiefs so it's really an assertion of what Sautin law which of course still exists and has existed assisted pre Canada and sort of is rubbing up against Canadian law.

Understanding 'Gender Impact' in Canadian Construction Work

"Might not say what is a gender lens have to do with building this new highway or this new pipeline or something. Well, there are gender impacts. When you bring construction workers into a rural area, there are social impacts that was last year and Buenos Aires, and you may remember some of the immediate reaction. We don't think that you need to have some kind of gender-based analysis when two thousand people come to create jobs to work to support hotels and restaurants as small businesses and families. It's unbelievable to watch. This prime minister refused to acknowledge that his arrogant and self righteous comments are an insult to tens of thousands of Canadians who work in construction in our communities across the country. Here's what that all comes down to whether or not you support pipelines and dams whether you think Justin Trudeau is a modern progressive example for the rest of us or a fake feminist who doesn't understand the real world. These construction projects which employ thousands of out of area workers for months at a time to have an impact on the communities that host, and yes, some of that is a positive contribution to the economy and local infrastructure, and yes, some of that is negative and when it gets bad it can get really bad. There are a couple of ways that we can measure these impacts one is with numbers, and that's being done. The other is the old fashioned way. You send a reporter he talks to everyone. And he tells us what he found today, we have both of those things. So we're going to try to answer the question. What are the real costs of Canada's worker camps? Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Kyle Edwards is a reporter from mcclain's who spent time at a massive worker camp enforce Saint John and British Columbia. Tell me why you went to fort Saint John. Well, it started in. I think it was August twenty eighteen there was this story out in Manitoba. After kind of this arm's length and agency provincial agency in Manitoba had released. A report they're called the clean environment commission, and they had released a report that had gained a lot of media. Attention, basically detailed allegations of sexual abuse. Dating back to the nineteen sixties at a work camp up in northern town called Gillam, which is just east of a city called Thompson Manitoba, right? And the it was involving several first nations communities one in particular was the FOX like creation, and there were members they kind of detailed these horrible issue. These horrible stories of sexual abuse at the hands of. Manitoba hydro workers one person in particular had said that the RCMP organized gangs back in the nineteen sixties. And so it was this very explosive report. I guess I guess you call it. And it it gained a lot of media attention in in Manitoba last year. And so we were talking about it at McLeans. And we want us to do a story we actually discussed the idea of doing a story on industrial camps last year around the time the report came out, and so that was kind of the time that was kind of when I started thinking about it. And I put in some f allies and started asking people if this was an issue that they're really concerned about and that took me to fourteen John which is where it's a city that is known for having a very large transient population. Which is which basically means there are workers that go there for work. What do we know about what happens these camps, or I guess what's kind of the? The popular stereotype around them. Because the the reports detailing what allegedly happened in Manitoba is not kind of the only one of its kind. Yes. So in thousand seventeen a report from this organization called or this consulting group called the Firelight group. They released a report that basically raised a bunch of warnings about when there's a particular camp near in an area by other communities. There's a increase in issues like sex trafficking in the sex trade. There's an increase RCMP data and the report showed that there was a thirty eight percent increase in reported sexual assaults in Saint James fourteenth, James BC in two thousand and eleven and there were other issues like an increase in S T is in a particular area as well as other concerns regarding rampant drug. Use in alcohol use in in in a lot of these camps. And this is has been really as I kind of looked into it a little bit more. This was something that a lot of people have a lot of scholars and academics. Researchers had they've kind of looked into this issue for many many years. Yeah. And and it just seemed like it was nothing new and a lot of people kind of knew that there were a lot of social impacts to industrial camps. So that's really kind of drove the story. So you went to Ford Saint John to essentially see what the situation was like on the ground, and and what kind of social construct springs up around these camps. Exactly enforcing John. There's a huge strain on. So there they call them. They call it the shadow population. A lot of people that's a term a lot of people use the province of British Columbia is not really sure how many people are going to northeastern BC for work who live. Who live elsewhere who reside permanently? Elsewhere, right, and one of the challenges with that is s- things like health services and social services, the those those sort of things are funded by the province based on the resident population, and without taking into consideration, the thousands and thousands of people that most nearly double the actual population. When I got there. A lot of women spoke about a lot of indigenous woman, I spoke to you spoke spoke a lot about racism and sexual harassment and use and it was kind of alarming. Really? So can you tell me about some of the people you met in fort Saint John and some of the stories you heard so I

How secretive technology could be tracking your phone

"You've been lucky enough to find yourself. Wait. I can't tell you where while the police were investigating. I can't tell you that either using a piece of equipment that some forces may or may not possess. And no, they won't tell you that at a certain time. Then congratulations. You may now exist as a random bunch of numbers in a collection of evidence that the police are storing they won't tell you where until they eventually figure out what to do with it. And they might not tell you what they decide to do with it. Either good news, though, it's only a number not a name and some meta data. But there's no way they can identify you based on that. Right. Jordan Heathrow wings. And this is the big story. And are you being paranoid? If they really are watching. Yes. This is one of those episodes. Kate Allen is the Toronto Star science and technology reporter, what's the latest way. Thority if my city are watching. Well, the police service told us a few days ago that they have purchased a Stig Stingray or an emcee catcher, which is a type of cell phone surveillance technology that sweeps up data on also phones within its range. It's usually used on a criminal suspect. But sweeps up everybody within a trench. Oh, good. How does it work? So we don't really know because police have been extremely not forthcoming about how they work. And in fact, have in trials in cases where these things were used. They've applied to. Not disclose any anything about how they work or even the the manufacturer model of these devices. But roughly they sort of force your cell phone all cell phones, within range of the device to identify themselves to device, so they capture a bunch of different types of data. One of the one of the types of data is MC number which is just like a fifteen digit serial code associate with your sim card, and then a couple other types of you know, like a serial number. So she with the actual piece of equipment that you carry and things like that and cops where are using these things. That's a great question. We don't know the answer to that fully either. Why not well the police have been pretty tight lipped about it. I they would say that they're trying to protect investigative techniques. And so I mean, there's nothing compelling them to tell to reports to the public or to journalists they're using them. And so they it hasn't really come to light except for in a few core cases. And when journalists have done some. Digging. So what happens is that a kiss? We'll get into court and the evidence will be presented. And then you find out like, oh, this is how they gathered that vary. Rarely yes. And where have we found that they are being used the first we knew was that the RCMP own some of these devices and so a couple years ago after some court cases were a little bit of info came too late. The empty set down with some journalists and said, yes, we own ten of these devices we've been using them for more than a decade at that point. So we know the CPA uses them other forces have said that the the RCMP has operated those devices on their behalf. So we we actually put in some freedom of information requests with the Toronto police a few years ago, and it came back to us that the Trump service had used the devices on five separate occasions. And in the cases, where they would tell us you tells the AP had always operated it for them. Okay. But we know there. Being used in a few cities. Yes. Yes. So I can give you a couple of other cities so Calgary. Police service says that they own Stingray. Winnipeg please services they own a singer and Vancouver. Police have said that their law enforcement partners have operated it operated on for them. What kinds of data can this capture? The police are pretty clear that the devices that they owned do not capture private communications. So they're not capturing your text messages or phone calls or emails anything like that. It also is not capturing your name or your telephone number. What it is capturing is an identifier associated with their cellphone. So the main one they're looking for is this I m s I number which is just as I said, it's a it's a number associated with your sim card identifies you to the network as you what do they do with that? How does this help? Actually, this a better question. How does this help in an investigation? We don't know all of the uses thing and all of the times they've used it. So as I said only some cases have come to light. And in the one that I know best which was a major drugs and guns case in Toronto in two thousand fourteen the police use because they're trying to do is figure out. So so, you know, drug dealers and gun runners and people like that often change their cell phones. So the police like them and use them because they can operate this thing at a location where suspect is and gather also gather all of the cell phone data in within range of that location. Public him pro everybody everybody within range of the device, including hopefully suspect, and then they followed us to another location. Do it again. And then you know, let's say to another time and other times they're finding the one number that is comment all of those locations, which they will then assume as the suspects empty number and then they get a warrant to connect. That number to that person's name, and the reason that they are doing this is because I mean, at least in the cases, I'm aware of these are usually big cases that involve wiretapping. So they are trying to make sure they know all of the cell phones and land lines that these their targets are using. So that they are wiretapping all of the numbers of their suspects. What happens to the rest of the data that they get? Well, they're using this machine from I'm assuming some of these are used in crowded public places. Yes, that's a really good question. The RCMP has said that when they capture all of us unique identifiers from all of your cell phones in a given location. They only so there's a person who's operating the device and they only pass on the suspects data to investigators. How do they know which one is the suspect by process of elimination their their funding the one number that's comment already the patients that they track the suspect to. And that's the number that they want. So now with the hundreds and sometimes thousands of other numbers that they capture of innocent bystanders who they're not looking for the have said that they keep that information sort of fire walled off from investigators. They securite in a location that you know, it's it's just away from the rest of the. Nothing bad will ever. Yeah. And they have they have said that they will destroy the the this data after any court cases finished after any appeals periods of finished. This is an interim policy developed by the so it's not a finalized policy. It's also not a law. It's a policies rate. It's something they've decided to do what they what they decided. How did you guys find out then that the Toronto police were using these devices so back in I believe it was twenty fifteen I was working on this topic with some of my colleagues, and we asked the Toronto police service do you own and do you use Stingray? And a spokesperson told us we do not own and do not use one of these devices. Then we put in a series of freedom of information requests with the Toronto police asking essentially for you know, anytime they had use it and a full two years later. We got information back that they had actually used. And it on five separate occasions. Okay. To them. They wouldn't tell us about because they were either before the courts are still under investigation. And the other one's range from like, a Bank robbery was missing persons. When was this big, drugs and guns case? But you know, so therefore was not true that the Trump had never used one of these devices. What was true is that they had always used the RCMP's devices in their investigation. Okay. So that was a year ago. So we reported that they said they never used it. They actually had in five separate occasions and just this past week when I was reading about the topic again, I thought okay? Well, we haven't really asked Toronto police in a little while if they if they own a device or asked him again, and they told me actually they had recently acquired one of these devices for

A place where the travel ban doesnt matter

"Details. Tell me what it's like inside the library. What does it look like it's very sort of warm and inviting it's very small library. There's a main kind of children's reading room that's very brightly decorated. There's a sort of more kind of work like space that has some tables and and chairs and then computers for people to use. There's sort of a stacks area in the back of the library. And then there's like a main hallway, and that's basically, it's you know, there's wood paneling as an American. I was quite amused at there's a moose head on the wall, very true to form it's sort of has this Victorian feel but also very homey at the same time. And then of course, sort of like pretty innocuous on the ground. There's like this piece of black. I'm not sure if it's like electrical tape or actually just painted on. But it's this like thin black line, that's sort of cuts diagonally across the library. And that demarcates the. The international border. And so, you know, it's sort of almost like an afterthought, it's not really a formal marking and not I think also kind of represents that's this library like once you're in. There these borders. Kind of don't really matter that much and people can freely cross, and they don't really have any issues with that. How does this place even exist in two thousand eighteen given are sort of strong, borders, leaders and immigration law? These days, it seems like a total relic of the past it it really does feel that way. It felt to me like it was in this very tenuous situation. And that that it was a very fragile place. And I think that was obvious and the libraries attitude towards the visits, and in some of the interactions that I learned of as I was reporting this story, especially between US immigration authorities, and the Iranians the sense, I get is that it really depends on the agent and. There isn't like a set policy. One pair of sisters. I spoke to and who are in the story came there last September in the September. And we're we're actually blocked from going, and they were told that the reunions aren't allowed anymore, and then when a staff member invited them in for a tour because at that time the opera house was was having tours later that staff member was was chastised by border patrol. You know, I I heard a lot of stories that are also in the in the piece itself about border patrol agents trying to limit the visits to like twenty minutes to to prevent them from happening in other ways telling people they shouldn't be meeting there. I think when you're there when the is actually arrived there, it's it's hard to say no to them because they're usually like very sympathetic people. Are you know, some elderly parents some, you know, the young students even some children's sometimes come like the nieces and nephews of the students and so. There doesn't seem to be an easy universal policy. You know, we we did hear from a library staff member that both US and Canadian authorities had threatened to shut the library down over the visits. I should say that the Canadian authorities deny that and the Americans declined to respond to to our request for comments. But I had heard from, you know, people connected to the library, former board members just people sort of in the community that there was a lot of pressure that the library was facing over these visits. And it's it's not exactly clear to me, why the Canadians told me I I talked to RCMP basically, they have no problem with the visits. They say they're they're legal, and they don't have any fear of legal crossings because the area's very heavily surveilled. There's a lot of cameras around. So they they have a pretty good sense of who's going in and who's coming out. And you know, I put a lot of questions to the American thirties. They didn't answer they sort of pointed me to a general law against illegal crossings. But you know, there's no point in my story or any of the Iranians that I spoke to that indicates that they intended to legally cross they really just wanted to be at this library temporarily and then go back to where they came from. So I think that as long as the library itself remains open to people from Canada coming in without going through a port of entry that it would be very difficult to completely bar the visits from happening, and there's still this sort of grey zone. And you know, now we're into the winter. We don't like these visits are slowing down naturally anyway. And so it will be interesting to see if this continues when the weather gets nicer, and it's sort of more of the tourist season, Vermont and Quebec. But it it it's impossible to be there. And not sense kind of overall this overriding tension and not see it in the context of. The the US tightening its immigration laws and tightening its immigration policies in general, especially towards obviously people from Iran that very much sort of permeates the atmosphere when you're there, and and when you kind of talked to people about this issue to me, this entire story is just like a picture of a moment in time that you'll never be able to to recreate because we're like this nexus of changing immigration, and yet there's still these places that are like remnants of the relationship that we used to have I I mean, you know, for me, it was this was the story was important because I think like when the history of this era is written like, you know, you'll have the speeches you'll have the policies you'll have the executive orders. But how is the travel ban changing people's lives like that to me is an important question. And also, it's something that's really faded from the headlines and people don't really talk about much anymore because there's just so much other stuff happening. But it was the first thing that Trump did as president, and it was like a week after he. Took office that this happened. And it it's important, and it's like reverberated in thousands and thousands of people's lives. And and I just really wanted to sort of tell that story. And I don't think there's really anyone even in the story who's who even directly criticizes, the Trump administration, or or has any sort of partisan words or anything like that. But I do think you sort of get a very tangible sense of of the lengths that people will go to see each other and sort of what obstacles have now been put in their way. I remember walking around that library and picking out kids books to read or VHS movies to rent or whatever. And and not giving thought to anything about the US Canada border other than it's neat that there's a line on the floor, you know, and as a kid you would jump from back and forth on I'm in America. I'm in Canada. And there was no. But there was no thought back then of this being a heavily regulated border. I really think you know, that that's something that I kind of had some inkling of when I reported the story, and even when I published it, but hadn't thought a lot about there's this historian on Twitter. This guy Jacob remiss, and he was saying, you know, how these sort of spaces these kind of spaces that you can't really categorize that easily. How they mean different things different people when the US sort of starts to close down. It's very contested tradition of openness, and and the and the Canadians. I I don't really know enough about it. But my son says that the border is not as big of an issue to them as it is to the United States, especially after nine eleven I think that was a real turning point from when I talked to people seem like that was when you you could go from just from what you experience in your childhood that just sort of crossing and kind of saying hi to the border agent, but not really having to go through a formal process to what it is now which is. Like every single person has to show their passport and has to subject themselves to question, the questioning and possible searches or whatever it might be. And and these these like little areas are very rare, and maybe fading. I mean one one criticism I got a lot of both during the story. And when it came out was well now that, you know, you're publishing this it's going to end, and you know, there's not much I can say to that. I can't predict the future, and it's really not my position. So sort of try to ensure that something continues or doesn't continue. But, but there was very much that that anxiety among people that like if anyone finds out about this like our lives could change, and we we we won't be able to have this anymore. So it all just kind of felt very precarious and varies sort of fragile scientific maximum of you can't observe something. Like that without changing totally.
