An aboriginal group along the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline says Enbridge's claim of widespread support among First Nations is a sham.

On Tuesday, Enbridge announced it had signed agreements with 60% of the aboriginal communities on the route, saying that's proof there's more support for the pipeline than opponents would suggest.

But Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations, says he knows of only two First Nations who have signed the equity-sharing deal, and he accuses Enbridge of expanding its corridor to include support from communities that won't be directly affected by the pipeline.
