HONOUR SOLEMN TREATY PROMISES AND RESTORE CONFIDENCE IN FEDERAL SITE C DECISIONS

November 19th, 2015

Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice

Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change

Dear Honourable Ministers,

Honour Solemn Treaty Promises and Restore Confidence in Federal Site C Decisions

Please find enclosed our letter requesting that your new government take steps to honour solemn treaty promises and restore open, transparent and accountable federal government decision-making regarding the controversial $8.8 Billion Site C Dam project on British Columbia’s Peace River.

We ask for your personal involvement and commitment to make Site C an urgent government priority. Time is running out. Preliminary construction has started. The Peace Valley is beginning to be destroyed for future generations of indigenous and non-indigenous people.

In our letter we outline immediate steps the new federal government can take to start:

· Honouring solemn treaty promises made to First Nations impacted by Site C,

· Restoring openness and transparency to federal Site C decisions, and

· Restoring public confidence in federal Site C decisions.
