Note to Reader: I made this presentation on February 9th 2017 at a forum that was hosted by UVIC, Amnesty International, Sierra Club BC, Council of Canadian, Kairos BC. It was a 20 minute presentation so this article is a bit long.
Sometimes it is hard to believe it is 2017 when BC is building yet another mega dam that will destroy the land, the water and the ecosystems and First Nations cultural and heritage sites, agricultural lands, people’s homes and so many other important things. You wonder how can a government be so short sighted, money minded and grasping for a legacy that will bear their name in order to win the next election.
BC thinks nothing about inundating First Nation burial sites, sacred and heritage sites, areas with unique ecosystems that support the exercise of treaty rights and increasing the already massive cumulative effects on ecosystems caused by the other dams on the Peace River in northern BC.
