The oil spill in Alberta has heightened the fears of the many First Nations opposed to new oil projects.

For the Yinka Dene Alliance in British Columbia it confirms their opposition of a new pipeline that will stretch from Alberta to the northern B.C. coast.

Now, the alliance is trying to target one major company where it hurts. The Yinka took their protest to the CIBC over the bank’s support for pipeline company Enbridge.
