The PM might want to make the case that reconciliation isn’t dead and Canada isn’t falling into ‘mob rule’. The most evocative image coming out of this week’s protests against the Coastal GasLink pipeline was that of a Canadian flag hanging upside-down outside the provincial legislature in Victoria, with the words “Reconciliation is dead” scrawled across it. Because it’s 2020, that phrase was a hashtag, too.
