Brent Burnstick takes us on a tour of Alexander First Nation, the first reserve on the Enbridge Northern Gateway corridor.
The proposed pipeline would transport corrosive, heavy bitumen from the Alberta oil sands to tankers on the BC coast. With support from the Canadian government and right-wing media outlets, Enbridge appears poised to push the pipeline through.
First Nations are among the most vocal opponents of the project. But Enbridge has been going down the line, quietly buying support. Now Brent fears his own band leaders have secretly signed a deal.
