Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says he's concerned that blockades in support of First Nations opponents to a northern British Columbia natural gas pipeline are a "dress rehearsal" for opposition to future energy projects.

Demonstrations have blocked railways, ports and bridges across the country in solidarity with hereditary chiefs fighting the Coastal GasLink project that crosses the traditional territory of the Wet'suwet'en First Nation.

Kenney described the protests at a Tuesday news conference as "ecocolonialism" from southern Canadians "projecting their own fringe political agenda."
