Keeping the Peace Event: An Evening to support Treaty 8 Nations

Please join us for an evening of discussion, solidarity and action in the fight to stop the Site C dam.

The BC and federal government are pushing ahead with the Site C dam, even though the governments’ own review panel found that that Site C would cause severe and unmitigable impacts to Treaty 8 First Nations and negative impacts on the Peace Valley region as a whole. Treaty 8 First Nations and Peace Valley landowners are standing up in court for human rights, cultural survival and productive farmland.

Admission by donation. All proceeds go to the Treaty 8 First Nations legal challenges against Site C.

Speakers include:

– Chief Roland Willson, West Moberly First Nations
– Joe Foy, Wilderness Committee
– Craig Benjamin, Amnesty International Canada
– Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, Union of BC Indian Chiefs

Hosted by Wilderness Committee, Sierra Club BC, Amnesty International Canada, Union of BC Indian Chiefs and Peace Valley Environment Association.
