Did you know that as a BC Hydro ratepayer you are subsidizing projects like the Kinder Morgan pipeline and tankers proposal and Petronas’ liquefied fracked gas plant at Lelu Island? Sierra Club BC's new video and report, "Hydro Bill Madness," shows just how bad a deal we're being sold.

Based upon a process initiated by Sierra Club BC, UNESCO visited the Peace River Valley to investigate how the Site C dam endangers Wood Buffalo National Park. The newly released report strongly criticizes Canada for failing to protect its largest World Heritage Site. This report demonstrates the Trudeau government should never have allowed any approvals for the Site C megadam in the first place.

For our Peace Valley Campaigner Galen Armstrong, thinking of the people who are most directly facing the consequences of the Site C dam is what motivates him to keep going. Even if it sometimes feels like the odds are stacked us, what we are doing makes a difference and it's still possible to stop the dam.

Momentum is heating up across the province on Site C – and we’ve been tapping into it like never before with our Great Site C Roadshow. In the span of just one month, eleven Site C awareness events were held in communities across British Columbia.

The first thing I wanted to do as Peace Valley Campaigner was visit the Peace River Valley—to see it for myself for the first time, and to meet the people who have worked the longest and hardest to stop the incredibly foolish megadam proposal.

The links between Petronas, fracking and Site C are becoming clear—and the news is troubling for taxpayers and our climate. British Columbians will be subsidizing the fracking industry through the construction of the Site C megadam.

On July 28, we were shocked and saddened to learn that DFO has issued permits for continued construction of the Site C dam, despite strong opposition by Treaty 8 First Nations, multiple court challenges, and an unprecedented Statement of Concern from over 350 scientists and the Royal Academy of Canada, who unanimously called on the federal government to revisit the Order in Council approving Site C, and to suspend the issuance of further permits pursuant to the Order in Council until it has completed an analysis of the project’s impact on Aboriginal and Treaty rights.
