Tranquil evening on the water for West Moberly First Nations.

Thank you to everyone who came out to our second floating concert in Victoria in support of the legal challenges of West Moberly First Nations!

On July 29th, we hosted our second concert on the Gorge to raise funds to West Moberly First Nations’ legal challenge to Site C Dam. The Nation is pursuing a legal challenge against British Columbia, BC Hydro and Canada for infringement of constitutionally protected rights under Treaty No. 8. West Moberly is asking the court to stop construction of Site C dam and order BC Hydro to restore the Peace River to its natural state.
