Site C dam opponents gathered at the Vancouver Convention Centre this morning.
Representatives of the Wilderness Committee spoke with Union of BC Municipalities delegates as they entered the convention centre this morning.
Joe Foy is the National Campaign Director for the group, and he says many municipalities are concerned over the loss of farmland due to flooding by the dam reservoir.
While there have been some legal setbacks for opponents of the project, Foy says there’s still a lot of fight left.
The province says Site C is necessary to meet future energy needs, and the project will provide clean and renewable energy.
But Foy says the negative impacts are too high of a price.
The UBCM will be voting on two resolutions on Site C, one calling for the BC Utilities Commission to review the project, and another calling for the Agricultural Land Commission to have oversight.
