United Nations panel wants to put a pause on Site C

The very controversial Site C project could put on pause.

A United Nations panel says the construction of the provinces 8.8 billion dollar dam should be halted until there is a full review on how it would affect Indigenous land.

Amnesty International also urges the Canadian government to act on all the recommendations made for Canada by the UN Committee for the Elimination of Racism and Discrimination

The recommendation comes three weeks after BC’s NDP government asked for a review of the mega project.

The government asked the B.C. Utilities Commission to determine the economic viability of the massive hydroelectric dam on the Peace River and issue a final report by November 1st.

The UN panel says a full review should be conducted in collaboration with Indigenous Peoples.
