"We are not a country where politicians can order the police to do something, we are a country that has confidence in its police forces and allows them to do their work in scope of these blockade," Trudeau said, while speaking to reporters in Germany.

Trudeau said blockades that have led to disruptions for Canadian railway services have made it a "difficult week" for the country. Blockades began in support of the B.C. nation's hereditary chiefs, who oppose the construction of a pipeline through their land.

Meanwhile, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said those demonstrating in solidarity with hereditary chiefs of Wet'suwet'en Nation should "check their privilege" on Friday while speaking to reporters in Ottawa.
