Doug Eyford, the Harper-appointed Special Federal Representative on West Coast Energy Infrastructure to British Columbia and Alberta First Nations, was expected to host a meeting at the Best Western Dorchester Hotel in Nanaimo yesterday to review recommendations from his report, 'Forging Partnerships Building Relationships: Aboriginal Canadians and Energy Development'.
The Mid Island chapter of the Council of Canadians reports, "Here are some pictures from (yesterday) morning and afternoon. There was lots of good support from passersby and the bureaucrats inside were very aware of our presence (thanks to the megaphone!). Eyford didn't attend... Thank you to everyone who took time from their day to come out and make their voices heard - No Means No - No Pipelines No Tankers!"
