David Suzuki and Grand Chief Stewart Phillip be in attendance to show their support for protest camp at Rocky Mountain Fort in opposition to the Site C dam. On Monday the BC Supreme Court will be hearing an injunction application from BC Hydro requesting removal of the protest camp.

The camp maintains that construction of the proposed hydro dam should not proceed while legal challenges remain in the courts and opposition to the project continues to grow. Supporters have also called for a halt in all construction activity until the Auditor General has reviewed the recommendations and projections provided by BC Hydro and until it is evaluated by the BC Utilities Commission.

Suzuki and Phillip will be on hand to speak to the media at 9:30 on the courthouse steps, following which they will attend the court proceedings, scheduled to begin at 10 AM. Citizens supporting the efforts of the Treaty 8 Stewards of the Land are encouraged to come to the courthouse Monday morning.

    I will try to be there. I am all for stopping this incredibly stupid project – Christy’s “legacy” is not going to be on the backs of what is right. This is the good fight and thanks to everyone who is voicing their opposition.

    The Premier is trying to push the Site C dam and LNG on B.C. citizens even though she is behind the times and putting our health and prosperity on the hook for her own infamy . Its like the Harper government doing what it wanted without any regard for the citizenry and its wishes . Governments are temporary to limit their power , to keep them from trying to impose personal interest before the obligation to maintain a stable living situation for their term in office .

    It could be a very interesting procedure, the land could really use a win on this hearing. Let’s hope that Common Sense prevails.
