Dear Mr. Monaco:


Re: Cease and desist order for investigative field work activities related to Enbridge Northern Gateway
pipelines

We are the Chiefs of the Yinka Dene Alliance. Since the time the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipelines and tankers project was announced, we have told you plainly that we will not allow your project to cross
our territories. We stand firm in this. Our Indigenous laws forbid the transport of toxic bitumen through our lands. It is our responsibility to protect the salmon in our rivers and to keep the waters clean for future generations. The Save the Fraser Declaration states our legal position unequivocally. We have made our decision against your project abundantly clear, and we are quite certain you are aware of it. Now Enbridge has sent correspondence to one of our nations, Nak’azdli, indicating an intention to proceed with work related to the Northern Gateway pipelines in their territories, and to seek related provincial permits and approvals.

We are writing to put you on notice that any entry onto our lands in relation to the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline will be considered an act of trespass.


This is your final warning to refrain from unwanted activity on our lands. If you fail to heed this warning, you will be in breach of our laws and can expect to face legal consequences. We will proceed against you
with enforcement actions and will seek appropriate remedies. We trust that you will communicate this information to your employees as well as to your affiliates and to all contractors hired to conduct work on your project.


Snachailya, Mussi cho’
