Help First Nations achieve justice for Site C

Y2Y is working together with our partners, including RAVEN, LeadNow and Amnesty International, to raise $30,000 by September 12.

The fight to stop Site C is far from over.

A few weeks ago the federal government issued permits for continued construction of the dam. 

Starting September 12, the Federal Court of Appeal will hear the case brought by the West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations in Montreal. Y2Y is working with those Nations to ensure the highest possible profile for this critical case.

In just a few weeks dozens of members of Treaty 8 First Nations will embark on the Treaty 8 Justice for the Peace tour - travelling 4,400 km from B.C.'s Peace River Valley to the federal courts in Montreal. Along the way they will stop in communities to build support for their case against the Site C dam.

Y2Y is working together with our partners, including RAVEN, LeadNow and Amnesty International, to raise $30,000 by September 12, to support their efforts. These funds will bring the people who are affected by Site C directly to the decision-makers who can stop this destructive project from proceeding.

Please help us make by making a donation today - it will directly support First Nations efforts.

The issuance of the federal permits comes even as the case against Site C grows and grows. Several independent reports are confirming what First Nations and advocates have been saying all along:

    • Site C violates treaty rights.
    • Site C is a failure of governance.
    • Site C is an environmental nightmare.
    • Site C is not clean energy.

Site C is in the media every day. Over 100,000 people have spoken up, including you. This dam can be stopped.

The federal court case is now our best chance to stop Site C. We hope you will chip in and support the Justice for the Peace Tour. The youth and elders of Treaty 8 are counting on you.
