B.C.'s Coastal First Nations Walk Away from Northern Gateway Review Process

Feb 5, 2013
(The Canadian Press)

Coastal First Nations have left the federal review of the Northern Gateway pipeline plan, saying they've run out of money and patience.

Executive director Art Sterritt has told the panel the group representing nine aboriginal bands from the B.C. coast and Haida Gwaii has spent more than three times the amount of funding allotted by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency four years ago.

Sterritt said the approximately $280,000 they had cannot compare to the $250 million Enbridge (TSX:ENB) is spending on a team of lawyers.
