A group of leaders who say they represent 200 First Nations from B.C. and Alberta are in Ottawa this week.

Their goal is to stop Bill C-48 which is also known as the Oil Tanker Moratorium Act.

    The 12 Disciples and good old Judas Helin for their spokesperson, he has a huge hidden agenda in all of this. Where is the documentation that they actually represent 200 First Nations and just which First Nations are they? Throwing out a number doesn’t mean anything, lets see the proof. Give us an actual list of these First Nations because we already know some of them that you say back up this plan DO NOT SUPPORT it at all. In fact the majority of his own community DO NOT SUPPORT this at all.
