UPDATE: Enbridge denies being kicked out of Gitga’at territory
Members of the Gitga’at Nation of Hartley Bay say they kicked representatives of Enbridge out of their territory on Wednesday after failing to properly consult with the community of Hartley Bay, though Enbridge denies that is what happens.
According to the Gitga’at, company representatives and a team of oil spill response surveyors showed up uninvited.
