You can’t build a relationship with First Nations and allow Site C dam to proceed

UPDATE - It’s unprecedented: 250 academics and scientists and the Royal Society of Canada called on the federal government to stop development on B.C.’s Site C dam project, citing environmental impacts and lack of First Nations consultations and approval. Join the growing opposition and stop this project from moving ahead.

The flood area for the mega-dam scheduled for construction in beautiful northeastern B.C. is on Treaty 8 land, includes prime agricultural areas and supports abundant wildlife.

Treaty 8 First Nations are challenging Site C dam construction in court — yet BC Hydro is clear-cutting old-growth trees along the Peace River after the B.C. government green-lighted the project.

After recognition of the disproportionate impacts of large development projects like Site C on Indigenous people, Canada should not move ahead with energy projects that violate human rights.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised a new relationship with First Nations. Stopping Site C dam is a good start.
