Truth Gathering/Truth Sharing

We have been contracted by the CRCC (Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP) to collect personal statements from individuals who have been directly impacted by the conduct of the C-IRG (Community-Industry Response Group) between January 1, 2017, and December 31, 2022, at any of the following locations: 

  • Cooper Creek Cedar Ltd injunction on Salisbury Creek Forestry Road;

  • Coastal GasLink Ltd injunction on Wet'suwet'en traditional territory; and

  • Teal Cedar Products Ltd injunction in the Fairy Creek watershed.


The nature of our work for the CRCC will involve us conducting interviews with impacted individuals in a decolonial, Indigenized, and trauma-informed manner. In short, we are truth gatherers, and it is our responsibility to share the truths of impacted individuals with respect to the manner in which they have been affected by the C-IRG. 


Moreover, we will do so in a supportive manner which minimizes the degree of re-traumatization. We understand that you may feel uneasy or skeptical about sharing your experiences with us; however, we can assure you that sharing your stories with us will be worthwhile in that your voice will be heard and your experiences will be documented in a narrative that you may keep and utilize for whatever purpose you may see fit—a logical decision as this is your story.


Additionally, your narrative will inform a public report that we will be drafting which brings to light the nature of the interactions between you and the C-IRG. Finally, we firmly believe that engaging in this process with us may lead to healing.


We would love to speak with you in greater detail about this important work, and we would be pleased to have the opportunity to introduce ourselves to you in a more fulsome manner. If you are interested in engaging in truth sharing with us, please reach out to us here. For more information about our work with the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission, please visit here.
