Beneath Enbridge’s PR Spin
On December 2nd 61 First Nations with territory in the Fraser River watershed spoke up against Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline – the Save the Fraser Gathering of Nations Declaration. The same day the Nations published a full page ad in the Globe and Mail.
Enbridge was quick off the bat to respond, emailing its own commentary on the Save the Fraser Declaration to its email lists and posting it to its blog that same morning. Similarly, a few days later after MPs voted on December 7th in Ottawa to call on the government of Canada to pass legislation banning tanker traffic from BC’s North Coast, Enbridge was quick to respond with its own statement.
