Basketball turns political with messages of support for Wet'suwet'en Nation

Politics mixed with sport at a First Nation basketball tournament in Northern B.C. over the weekend, but organizers argue political statements should stay on the sidelines. More than four dozen teams from across B.C. and Alaska gathered in Prince Rupert for the 60th All Native Basketball Tournament, which started on Sunday and runs until the end of the week. While most players wore their team's jersey, some took to black T-shirts with the phrase "Wet'suwet'en Strong" on the front and "unceded" on the back.
