Treaty 8 First Nations, Wilderness Committee and the Peace Valley Environment Association are embarking on a province-wide speaking tour to talk about the threats to the beautiful and ecologically important Peace River Valley.

Nestled in the Northeast corner of British Columbia, the Peace River Valley is home to Treaty 8 First Nations’ hunting, fishing, and trapping grounds, fertile agricultural lands and farms, old growth boreal forests, and one of the most important wildlife corridors in the Yellowstone to Yukon migration corridor chain. But the beautiful Peace River Valley is under threat.

Come learn about the consequences of the six billion dollar Site C Mega Dam project and hear first hand from people most directly impacted by the project.  If you care about climate change, food security, indigenous rights and wilderness areas, or are curious about energy demands in the province, this is a must attend event.

Please join us for the event in your community, and help us spread the word about this important issue.
