The Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada and the province’s national indigenous Anglican bishop have given their support to the Sioux people of Standing Rock as they protest against the construction of a major oil pipeline through ancient burial grounds and the Missouri River. Their support follows a statement yesterday from the Presiding Bishop of the US-based Episcopal Church in which he too gave his support.
