Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer blasted "radical activists" Friday for joining "illegal" railway blockades in solidarity with the Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs fighting against a major pipeline project in northern British Columbia.

"These protesters, these activists may have the luxury of spending days at a time at a blockade but they need to check their privilege," Scheer told reporters in Ottawa. "They need to check their privilege and let people whose job depends on the railway system, small business, farmers, do their jobs."

Many of the "radical activists" have "no connection to the Wet'suwet'en people," he said.
