Join the gatherings and show your support for protecting the Peace and First Nations as they work to preserve the opportunity to carry out their guaranteed treaty rights in the Peace River Valley. Three gatherings in three locations: May 12, Victoria; May 13, Vancouver; and May 14, Kamloops. Mark your calendars and join in solidarity!
The B.C. and federal governments are pushing ahead with the Site C dam even though their own review panel found that it would cause unmitigable impacts to the First Nations and negative impacts to the Peace Valley region as a whole. Treaty 8 First Nations and Peace Valley landowners are standing up in court for human rights, cultural survival and protection of farmland.

Tuesday, May 12, 2015: Victoria, 7-9 pm at First Metropolitan United Church, 932 Balmoral Rd
