It's time to talk to your MLA to be sure Site C gets stopped

We want to start with a big shout out to everyone who donated in the last week to support our campaign work!  Thank you so much!  For those who would still like to make a donation to ensure that we can see this campaign to stop Site C through to the end, please visit our donation page here (it’s Sierra Club’s page but your donation will go to all three groups).

We may well be in the home stretch!

The final decision on Site C will be made by the BC government. The BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) will submit their recommendations to the government on November 1st, shortly after which we expect them to announce whether they will cancel, put on hold or continue with Site C dam.

This is where you come in!

We need as many of you as possible to take actions such as those listed below to ensure that the politicians make the decision to cancel the dam completely:

  • Drop by your MLA’s office and talk to them and/or their staff about why we don’t need Site C.
  • Take the time to send a hand-written letter to your MLA about why BC doesn’t need Site C.  Hand-written letters are very effective! Drop it off in person if you can.
    • If you’re up for it, please also consider sending a hand-written letter to any of these key ministers (find their contact details here):
      • Michelle Mungall, Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources
      • George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change
      • Scott Fraser, Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation
      • Lana Popham, Minister of Agriculture
      • Broaden your impact by hosting a letter writing party with your friends – invite them over for an opportunity for discussion and action and get those letters out!
      • Go to our letter writing website and send a letter to key provincial politicians here.

Resources to assist you:

    • Find your MLA’s contact information here
    • Find useful facts from experts here.  Leave a copy for your MLA.

We’re all hoping that this is it – we are in the final stretch of this incredibly long road to ensure that the Peace River Valley and all British Columbians are saved from this unnecessary, overly expensive and destructive project. We know that we don’t need the power now and if and when we do, alternatives are far less expensive. We also know we can save more money by stopping the dam now than by completing it.

Thank you all for your incredible support!  And please consider making even a small donation to assist with our work on this campaign. If everyone donated just $10, we would be able to keep going. Our need at this time is urgent. Please make your donation here. Thank you.
