For three generations the threat of the Site C has hung over the First Nations and their way of life.
First Nation are opposed to the needless destruction of their heritage and their traditional lands and sacred burial sites. Site C would flood 78 First Nations heritage sites. The First Nations people living in Northeastern B.C. have already felt the intensifying industrial development of logging, mining, oil and gas development and hydro development. With 28,587 km of pipelines, 45,293 km of roads and 116,725 km of seismic lines used for oil and gas exploration within the Peace region already, Site C Dam poses even greater and more intense impacts on their land, their way of life and the wildlife that they rely on. It is illegal to impose this on them.
