The Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline is a topic of conversation from one end of the country to the other.

And so is the government’s take on those who oppose it.

In government documents, some First Nation organizations are labeled as adversaries.

The pipeline will run from the tar sands in Alberta to the British Columbia coast.

APTN National News‘ political panel discussed the issue this week.

Conservative MP Chris Walkerton, chair of the Commons Aboriginal affairs committee, NDP MP Linda Duncan, Aboriginal affairs critic for her party, and Liberal MP Carolyn Bennett, Aboriginal affairs critic for her party, joined APTN from Ottawa.
