First Nations Opposed to Pipeline Warn Enbridge Against Trespassing

Jun 27, 2013
(Vancouver Sun)

An alliance of six British Columbia first nations formed to oppose Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline is warning the company against trespassing in their traditional territories as Enrbidge seeks temporary permits for drilling and tree removal.

In a news release issued this morning, the Yinka Dene Alliance said it has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Enbridge. The alliance says its members' territories make up 25 per cent of the proposed pipeline route.

The release said that the granting of temporary work permits could put the B.C. government's new relationship with B.C. first nations at risk, including future talks on pipelines and LNG.
