Dear Friends of the Peace,

Our campaign to protect the Peace River Valley from Site C dam continues to grow with more individuals and organizations branching out and launching activities all over the province!  Following is a list of initiatives for you to consider – hope you can get involved in some of them!

The Yellow Stakes Campaign:  (on-going)
We ALL have a STAKE in the FUTURE of the PEACE RIVER VALLEY!

  • Demonstrate your stake in the Peace River Valley by sponsoring a large, yellow, wooden stake which will be pounded into the ground by volunteers at Ken and Arlene Boon’s farm in the valley.
  • Stakes are $100 with 100% of proceeds going to support the Prophet River and West Moberly First Nations’ legal challenges to protect the Peace River Valley.
  • Volunteers will write your name and home town/city on the stake
  • Next batch of stakes are scheduled to be pounded in on Tuesday, November 8th
  • Find more information on how to get your stake in the Peace at www.StakeinthePeace.ca

Site C Keep the Peace Speaking Event on Quadra Island (Friday, Nov 4th)

  • The Peace Valley can provide fruits and vegetables for one million people – and abundant traditional harvests of bull trout, moose, berries and medicinal plants for the region’s First Nations. If the B.C. government is allowed to flood this land for the Site C dam, there will be serious environmental and economic implications for British Columbians. How can we support the people of the Peace Valley and stop Site C?
  • Who:
    • Speakers include Julian Napoleon, Saulteau First Nation and Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty
    • Ana Simeon, Sierra Club BC and Raven Trust
    • Bob Peart, Sierra Club BC
  • Where:
    • Quadra Community Centre, 970 West Rd. Quathiaski Cove, BC

Hope you are able to make one or more of these events!

Please share these events with your friends who live in some of these locations.

It is in the best interests of all British Columbians to be well informed about the disastrous consequences of Site C not only from Indigenous and environmental perspectives but from economic perspectives as well.

Thank you for your support!

For the Peace,
