Today’s (May 14, 2018) ongoing citizen protest against the Site C dam project coincides with the announcement from the West Moberly First Nations of a decision rendered by the federal government regarding the injunction filed by the West Moberly and others to stop work on the contentious project. They argue Site C contravenes treaties they’ve signed with the government, and contend they were not properly consulted, and their objections and concerns not heeded properly.
There is some confusion on the tape during Barbara’s segment due to my misinterpretation of the government announcement. In short, the feds retreat is good news for those wishing to see the project stopped. Here’s a link to the release.
