Suzuki, Phillip lead support for Peace Valley land defenders as Hydro seeks injunction
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.
