Under Capitalism Someone Has To Lose?

Canadian National Railways halted more than 150 freight trains between Feb. 6 and 12, when demonstrators set up blockades in British Columbia and Ontario in solidarity with opponents of the Coastal GasLink pipe project that crosses the territory of the Wet'suwet'en First Nation in B.C. Via Rail said that 157 passenger trains have been cancelled, affecting 24,500 travellers on routes between Montreal and Toronto and Ottawa and Toronto. Already wood, pulp and paper producers have lost tens of millions of dollars. It’s easy enough to weep crocodile tears for these capitalists and sympathize with the Native Canadian's who know too well what happens when intrusions are made on their land, but the plain fact is in any situation under capitalism someone has to lose. Far better a society where no-one loses and capitalism gets lost.
