Our BC government has told us there is no choice but to proceed with the Site C Dam.
Many experts have challenged this decision arguing that cancelling Site C makes economic sense, as well as saving valuable agricultural land in the Peace River Valley, and honouring the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
On Friday, March 23 at 7 pm, Islanders For The Peace and the local chapter of the Council of Canadians are hosting a Town Hall meeting at the K’omoks First Nation Band Hall on Dyke Road to offer the latest up-to-date information and analysis from people on the front lines of this crucial debate.
Speakers include Ken & Arlene Boon of the Peace River Landowners Association and Steve Gray, Peace Valley Solidarity Initiative.
This event will raise funds for the Treaty 8 legal challenge being put to the courts by the Moberly Lake and Prophet River First Nations as well as for the Peace River Landowners Association who have been fighting this project for many years.
The Comox Valley is the 3rd stop of the Justice For The Peace Island Tour. Other events on the Islands will take place in Duncan, Sooke, Nanaimo, Quadra Island and Salt Spring Island. Silent auction items and services are gratefully accepted to help with raising funds. For more information, please contact Sally at 250 337-8328.
