British Columbia’s Energy Minister Michelle Mungall and the NDP cabinet are mulling over the risks of continuing with the Liberal’s Site-C project and possibly losing the next election over it.  If the NDP government builds this dam, they will also face a $1 billion-dollar lawsuit for infringement of treaty rights states our guest Roland Willson, Chief of the West Moberly First Nations.

Minister Bennett, Friends don’t Flood their Friends Lands

Sayin’ it like it is.

Reclaim the Warrior

There’s always a lot to say regarding Site C, and then there’s more to say…And then you say it all over again because people aren’t listening. I am currently trying to take a break from being an “accidental activist” (I see it more as an Indigenous woman doing what she is supposed to do) so that I can focus on adjusting to school for my Master’s program and focusing on my role as a mom and worker in the community. It is funny because even in whatever break I manage, my thesis will revolve around Hydro projects and resource extraction. It has become a part of my life and it has become so because there is too much to lose… I digress.

PEACE OUT doc featuring Site C on Knowledge Network, 9 pm Thurs Apr 3, 2014

The multi-award winning documentary featuring Site C, Peace Out, is playing on the Knowledge Network at 9p.m. on Thursday, April 3rd. Great, thought-provoking film! I highly recommend it!
In northern BC and Alberta, there has been an explosion in resource extraction activities, with mega-projects like the Site C dam, hydro-fracked shale gas wells, a nuclear power plant and the tar sands. The economy is booming, but with it comes heated debate and conflicting claims about the impact on the environment. In this thought-provoking and beautifully made film, Vancouver-based director Charles Wilkinson talks to experts from both sides of the divide, presenting an even-handed look at the issues as he probes the deeper causes of environmental exploitation.
