On July 8th, our friends up north will be hosting the 12th Annual Paddle for the Peace to celebrate and defend the beautiful Peace River against the Site C dam (https://paddleforthepeace.ca/).
Please join us on July 8th at 1 pm at Vanier Park (by the Maritime Museum) in Vancouver to stand in solidarity and opposition to the Site C Dam Project.
Site C Dam is a proposed 60-metre high, 1,050m length dam on the Peace River on Treaty 8 territory in northeastern British Columbia (see image below), a project that if built, would create an 83km reservoir submerging 78 First Nations heritage sites in violation of the Constitution Act.
When: 1-3 pm Saturday July 8th.
Where: Vanier Park
Featuring guest speaker Helen Knott an incredible poet and activist from Prophet River First Nation and the great, great granddaughter of Chief Makannacha.
The BC Sea Wolves will lead a symbolic paddle from Granville Island to Vanier Park. If you would like to join the paddle, please be prepared to meet at Granville Island at 12 pm sharp.
This event is presented by FightC, Force of Nature, Wilderness Committee and Climate Convergence Metro Vancouver.
