Grab a paddle and join Talaysay Tours and the Shishalh Nation for a paddle, rally & picnic to raise funds for the First Nations legal challenges against the Site C Dam. On July 9th, join thousands of people across the province who are grabbing a paddle and supporting the First Nations to stop Site-C in the courts. Their legal challenge is one of the last obstacles standing in the path of the Site C dam – they can win this, if we stand together.
