There are renewed hopes that the Site C dam on the Peace River in Treaty 8 territory in northern British Columbia could be stopped by an injunction that will be heard in court from July 23 to August 4. The West Moberly First Nations and Prophet River First Nation have noted that if the injunction is successful, a suspension of the construction on Site C would remain in place until a full trial and a binding determination has taken place, a process they indicate could take 18 months to several years to conclude.

The Council of Canadians first expressed our opposition to the Site C hydroelectric dam project in October 2014.
