Hmmm ... just realized that your article is from July 2019, and the papers were filed to support the Coastal GasLink injunction granted in February.

The headline is misleading because it is not current, and there is no adjudication as implied.

no - you inferred incorrectly. The quote I provided states that the female hereditary chiefs provided affidavits in support of the CGL pipeline... affidavits that spoke to how "the illegitimate 5" either stole hereditary titles from the women or were improperly given their title. Again, this was intended to align with the waldo's continued emphasis on challenges to the legitimacy of this group of 5 suspect hereditary chiefs presuming to speak for... improperly speaking for... the Wet'suwet'en.

in any case, it was a waldo teaser; a teaser to set-up today's meeting of the Standing Committee on Indigenous and Northern Affairs - where the same Hereditary Chief Theresa Tait Day gave testimony that addressed the illegitimate makeup of the current group presuming to speak for the Wet'suwet'en... and how that group (together with anti-pipeline activists) worked to silence Wet'suwet'en proponents of the CGL pipeline:

note: (Chief Theresa Tait Day's 12 minute testimony begins at ~12:42:20... followed by Q&A with Committee members)

Pipeline project was 'hijacked' by 'group of five guys,' former Wet’suwet’en hereditary chief tells MPs --- The hereditary chiefs were being supported by environmentalists who were disrespecting the rest of the Wet’suwet’en community, Tait Day said

so ya member Granny, the waldo's past questioning of the legitimacy of the current 5 "hereditary chiefs" presuming to speak for the Wet'suwet'en was/is key... in spite of how you wigged out over it - no matter how loud you barked about it being, "none of our business... that it was only the business of the Wet'suwet'en themselves".
