On Thursday morning, maverick Aboriginal leader Annita McPhee will speak in support of the Save the Fraser Declaration and the Tahltan nation’s position against Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline.
While the proposed pipeline does not go directly through Tahltan territory, salmon from the Pacific Ocean are an important food source to the Tahltan people, so the Tahltan want to protect the ocean from supertankers.
“Our people will not support pipelines transporting dirty oil across First Nations’ territories or supertankers clogging up our waterways,” said McPhee. “We have an opportunity to turn this around if we work together to send a message to the Government of Canada.”
