‘Keepers of the Water VI: Our Waters are One’ is a watershed gathering hosted by the Fort Nelson First Nation. As noted on their website, “This year’s gathering highlights the Fort Nelson-Liard River basin. The use of record-breaking mass-scale fracking is causing concern among our people and those who live downstream in the Arctic Ocean Basin. Our people are increasingly worried about the impacts that fracking will have on the land, the rivers and the muskeg. We aim to bring our concerns and solutions to the world.”
Tomorrow morning at 9:15 am local time, Council of Canadians chairperson Maude Barlow will be giving the keynote address, ‘A Call for Local Action’.
