DEFEND THE PEACE

We do not accept the justification offered by Premier Horgan to continue the Site C project and flood the Peace River valley. This is an opportunity to learn more.

Thank you for joining us at the Summit to decide new actions and new directions.


KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Chief Bob Chamberlin

Chief Robert Chamberlin

The cumulative impacts from this destructive dam are an unacceptable infringement on the rights of Treaty 8 Nations, and will be irreversible. Premier Horgan's approval of this project is in stark opposition to his simultaneous attempt to renew the province's relationship with Indigenous peoples, a central election promise of the BCNDP Government.

Chief Robert Chamberlin, Owadi, Vice-President of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs
