FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Truckers running the Alaska Highway can expect delays as a group of oil and gas workers plans to join a native blockade of a Petro-Canada oilpatch.

The group’s spokesman, Wayne Harvey, says workers initially planned to actively demonstrate against the band, but following a meeting with Chief Bernie Metecheah, of Halfway First Nation, they done a complete 180-degree about-face.

The band claims hunting grounds will be destroyed when construction of a gas pipeline begins in September. It wants an environmental assessment of the project.
