Kelly Lake Cree Nation speaks out against bombings

The chief of Kelly Lake Cree Nation is denouncing the recent bombings of an EnCana pipeline just a short distance from the homes of band members.

Chief Caillou says although his band engaged in a two day community disaster drill and pamphletting event that blocked oil and gas traffic on a road near Wapiti River earlier this year, they would never consider resorting to this kind of action to get their point across.

Lynette Hodges, who works with the band, says many members actually work for EnCana and other oil and gas companies in the area.

Police spokesperson Tim Shields says the safety of residents in the area is the force’s number one priority, and a community meeting has been planned for today to address the issue. The RCMP has said it’s bringing more forensic experts into the area this morning to aid in the investigation.
