On December 5th 2011, after a weekend of emergency clan meetings, the hereditary chiefs and members of all four Gitxsan clans publicly shut down the office where a $7 million dollar deal with the Enbridge Corporation was announced on Dec. 2nd.

The Enbridge deal was brokered behind closed doors without the knowledge or consent of the Gitxsan people.

This announcement shocked the country and Gitxsan members alike, coming just one day after 130 First Nations made a formal declaration of opposition to Enbridge, "forming an unbroken wall of opposition from the US border to the Arctic ocean."
