For those who were unable to attend the Enbridge Forum Tuesday evening we video recorded the entire evening in digital HD. Attached below is the first half of the evening. This included the introductions of each of the four panelists and each of their power point presentations.

Tsimshian Hereditary Chief Gerald Wesley was unable to attend due to a death in the family and Kitselas Chief Councillor Glen Bennett was able to stand in his place on very short notice.

The three other panelists were;

The Mayor of Dawson Creek, Mike Bernier, who spoke about the large benefits of the Oil and Gas Industry to the Dawson Creek residents.

From Smithers, Greg Brown, an environmental researcher, director of 'One Sky' and tireless campaigner for cleaner sustainable living.

and

From Calgary, Morgan Yates, an Enbridge community relations and aboriginal affairs director.

Only Chief Bennett did not have a slide show prepared. Both Bernier and Brown used dramatic images to get their respective messages across. Yates on the other hand displayed numerous images of text prepared by Enbridge.
