The Yinka Dene Alliance is one of the leading groups of First Nations in opposing the Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline and super-tanker project. We are six Dakelh (Carrier) and Tse Kay Nay (Sekani) Nations in the interior of what is known as British Columbia, and we are where the unbroken wall of opposition to Enbridge’s dangerous tar sands pipeline begins.
We are taking an historic journey — the Freedom Train — from our territories to Toronto. We will make stops for rallies and ceremony in Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg along the way, and will gain strength as we travel across Turtle Island. Remembering the Constitution Train of 1980, we will be travelling from our lands to the Canadian centre of financial power – Bay Street – to send the pipeline companies, oil companies, banks, financial media and the government an unforgettable message: tar sands pipelines and supertankers will not be permitted in our lands and waters.
