Words From and For the Future. Testimony at the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline Hearings, Vancouver, January 31, 2013


Posted on September 21, 2012

In December 2010, 61 In­digenous Nations in BC came together in a historic alliance to protect the Fraser River water­shed and to declare their oppo­sition to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline.

She described how the response to the spill was nothing like what had been promised by the oil companies before the port was opened.

She talked about how any spill response actually collects, at the most, 15% of the spilled oil, which
