The Site C dam, currently under construction, will put the Peace River Valley at significant risk, raise hydro rates for all British Columbians, violate First Nations sovereignty and threaten our province’s food security. As the province waits for the result of sending Site C to the BC Utilities Commission and prepares to revisit the decision around the project, Force of Nature is working to galvanize public opposition to Site C and help ensure the project meets a decisive and expedient end.
Force of Nature organizing teams are working through the fall of 2017 to:
Canvass at Lower Mainland farmers markets and street festivals to raise awareness and educate the public about Site C and its impacts
Collect 3000 signed postcards opposing Site C
- Flood the BCUC Hearings with opposition to the project.
- Meet with MLAs across the Lower Mainland to deliver postcards signed by their constituents and speak with them about Site C.
This summer, we organized a major rally against Site C at Vanier Park, our solidarity Paddle for the Peace. We also worked with our allies at Sierra Club BC, the Wilderness Committee, and FightC to flood the BCUC public input sessions, successfully turning out hundreds of concerned British Columbians to hearings across the province. We've collected well over 2500 signed postcards already, and we're in the last push to reach our goal of 3000 - can you help us make that happen?
