Enbridge documents libellous: Guujaaw

  • Jan. 4, 2012 9:00 a.m.

Guujaaw, president of the Haida Nation is making serious allegations about “deliberately misleading and false information” in some Enbridge Northern Gateway project documents. The Joint Review Panel will begin holding hearings about the project on Jan. 10, and Guujaaw is objecting to a document given to the panel by Enbridge that says the company and the Haida are in the process of “relationship building”. “Enbridge has provided deliberately misleading and false information.claiming that (it) has built relationships with the Haida Fisheries Program, Haida Development Corporation and Haida Child and Family Services. Haida Gwaii Community Futures is not an ‘aboriginal organization’ and (I) have no idea how they got on the list,” Guujaaw said in an email addressed to whom it may concern. “Representatives of the above organizations are in no way engaged with nor have they given any reason to believe they are ‘relationship building’ with Enbridge,” he said, “We would like to have all these names stricken from Enbridge’s files documents as it is libelous bringing these organizations into disrepute, not only with their own constituents, but also the many First Nations, organizations and people committed to the health of this planet.”
