Currently only communities in the Peace River area are being granted public open house meetings during the 45-day public comment period on the draft guidelines for the environmental assessment which ends June 1st.
“The proposed Site C Dam project is a massive undertaking that will impact every British Columbian and I don’t mean in a good way,” said Joe Foy, National Campaign Director for the Wilderness Committee.
"The impact on human rights from the Site C Dam would be unacceptable,” said Foy. First Nations communities as well as local farmers and ranchers in the valley are strongly opposed to the flooding of the Peace River Valley. People all over BC care about the loss of farmland and impact on the human rights of their northern neighbours and would want a chance to say that to the Environmental Assessment people face to face,” said Foy.
The Wilderness Committee is urging people to write to the Environmental Assessment office to demand public open house meetings in Vancouver, Victoria, Kamloops, Kelowna, Nelson and other southern BC communities.
