The Site C Summit – Accountability and Action will take place this coming weekend in Victoria, BC. Saturday is sold out but you can still attend the Friday program, or watch via live stream via these links on YouTube and FaceBook. There’s an amazing line-up of speakers, you won’t want to miss this!

The Site C Summit will review the rationale and the consultation/decision-making processes that led to the decision.
This will be followed by community action planning which will point us in new directions, in solidarity with First Nations.

On January 15th the Prophet River and West Moberly First Nations filed a civil claim in BC Supreme Court. At issue is the outstanding question of whether construction of Site C constitutes a violation of treaty rights guaranteed under Treaty 8, as well as the Canadian Constitution. The suit seeks an injunction to stop construction while the case proceeds.
