Dear Friends of the Peace,
Happy New Year! Here’s to putting a stop to the project that could become BC’s biggest White Elephant yet in 2017.
Our allies continue to work hard to build awareness about the fallacies of the Site C Dam project. We all want to ensure this is a priority issue in the upcoming BC election, happening May 9th, 2017. You can do your part by informing candidates in your local riding about this issue at public events, meetings or through letter writing. We have to do all we can to protect British Columbians from this completely unnecessary project.
What’s happening next?
As always, we are working on a roster of upcoming campaign related activities. You can keep up with all of them by following us on Facebook at Peace Valley Environment Association and Poets for the Peace.
