The residents of Kitimat, B.C. have voted against the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline in a non-binding plebiscite.
Enbridge came under criticism during the lead-up to Saturday’s vote, with opponents accusing the company of taking advantage of the lack of any rules on spending limits for municipal plebiscites and referendums.
Enbridge has yet to release any figures as of yet on what they spent on the campaign and said it will continue its efforts to obtain public approval.

Nathan Cullen, NDP MP for Skeena—Bulkley Valley Cullen said Enbridge should just stop the project.
"I am overwhelmed, I am feeling so good about the people here in Kitimat. Despite all the money, and all the cynicism, bullying that's been going on here, people got together - native, non-native, neighbour to neighbour - and raised their voices tonight," said Cullen, who was interrupted by cars driving by, honking and cheering.
"I am sure they will spin it. But we know we're on the right side of right...Enbridge should listen, the Conservative government should listen," reacted Cullen.
