Paddle for the Peace Build Momentum Against Site C Dam
by Damien Gillis l The Canadian.org
It was a record turnout and perfect conditions for the seventh annual Paddle for the Peace on July 14, 2012. Hundreds of boats and close to a thousand people in total joined in the event - co-hosted by Treaty 8 First Nations and the Peace Valley Environment Association - to show their opposition to the proposed Site C Dam, which would flood the area the boaters traveled, between the communities of Hudson's Hope and Forth St. John. See the day's highlights here, including a rousing speech from special guest Dr. David Suzuki.
