Dear Friends of the Peace,
Please join us for evenings of inspiration, solidarity and action as we work to protect the Peace Valley from Site C with speaking events throughout the province as well as a Town Hall event in Vancouver.
Opposition to Site C is riding a huge wave of momentum. In September, Treaty 8 First Nations travelled across Canada to the Federal Appeals hearings in Montreal. As a result, Liberal MP Robert Falcon Ouellette from Winnipeg broke the party line and publicly called out Prime Minister Trudeau on allowing Site C to violate Treaty 8.
In October, a UNESCO mission spent 10 days in the Peace Athabasca Delta investigating the threat posed by Site C to the Peace Athabasca Delta, a World Heritage Site. The feds now have to face International scrutiny and repercussions if the Site C desecration is allowed to go ahead.
Now is the time to take the wave even higher. The Great Site C Road Show 2.0 is touring the Kootenays and the Cariboo, and stopping on Quadra Island. Please join us and learn about Treaty 8 First Nations and Peace valley farmers’ strong stand for the Peace, and how we can support them and stop Site C.
The Great Site C Road Show 2.0 includes:
- Julian Napoleon of Saulteau First Nation, who is doing some amazing work with the Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty on connecting farmland issues and indigenous food systems.
- Sierra Club BC’s Ana Simeon and Galen Armstrong will bring us all up to speed with new opportunities to leverage international scrutiny of Site C to put pressure on the federal government.
- Investigative reporter Ben Parfitt will unravel the finances and show the threat Site C poses to low- and middle-income families and jobs in mill towns through increases in BC Hydro rates.

Premier Clark’s $9 Billion Heist: A Site C Megadam Town Hall
There’s a heist happening in the province, a 9 billion dollar heist, and it’s going on right under our noses! Even worse, the head bandit in charge of this whole scam was put in charge by tax payers. Christy Clark is taking us all for a ride, and she’s making a killing for her rich friends along the way. It’s up to all of us to stop her.
Join the Wilderness Committee and the Council of Canadians as we welcome guests Grand Chief Stewart Philip with the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, Emma Gilchrist with DeSmog Blog, Ben Parfitt with the Canadian Centre for Policiy Alternatives, and Morag Keegan-Henry of Fight C for an evening of myth busting and truth telling. These folks will be cutting to the chase, and you’ll leave with some knowledge and tools to help put an end to this boondoggle.
