Canada finally commits, and the next thing in the media is this.
Before anybody gets knickers in too much of a knot we need to remember that not everyone in Hawaii agrees with the protestors, and not even all *native* Hawaiians agree. These protests have been going on since day 1 on the mountain and - to be fair - the initial practices were perhaps not as respectful as they could have been. The folks on the mountain try to be very respectful and are getting better every day.
Listen to the protestors, respect their views, and try to address their concerns as best you can.
