David Suzuki and Grand Chief Stewart Phillip are flying in to a remote area in British Columbia’s Peace River Valley to offer support to a small group protesting construction of the Site C dam.

Mr. Suzuki, a globally recognized broadcaster and environmentalist, and Mr. Phillip, one of the province’s most influential native leaders, are scheduled to drop in by helicopter Tuesday to visit a small group of protesters who have been camped out in minus-20 degree weather for weeks.
