PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - There is rare agreement between the B.C. government, conservationists and First Nations — none of them believe they're getting all the answers from Enbridge (TSX:ENB) Inc. about the construction of the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline.

Lawyers for the Haisla First Nation, which oppose the pipeline, will question Enbridge officials today about the company's assessment of risks along the pipeline route.

It's the fourth day of hearings in Prince George.

The province of B.C. and the environmental justice group EcoJustice have complained that they're not getting the detailed responses they're seeking from the company.

Enbridge says they have submitted tens of thousands of documents — far more than required — but plans are still only preliminary at this stage of the process.

The review panel is weighing approval of the proposed 1,100-kilometre oil pipeline from Alberta to a tanker port on the B.C. coast.
