Members of the Gitga'at Nation say they have evicted a Northern Gateway Pipelines crew from their territory on B.C.'s north coast as it tried to conduct oil spill response surveys.

The small First Nation of Hartley Bay says the crew showed up uninvited to carry out work on a project that has not been approved – and that the Gitga'at continue to oppose.

Councillor Marven Robinson says pipeline proponent Enbridge has "screwed up" relations with First Nations and continues to do so.
