West Moberly First Nation challenging Site C in court today

Another challenge against the Site C dam goes to court today.

First Nations leaders are arguing that the BC government’s environmental approval of the project should be thrown out.

Chief of the West Moberly First Nation Roland Willson says the process was flawed and their treaty rights were ignored.

Willson says they’ll be back in court challenging the federal environmental assessment agency.

He also says this isn’t a case of not-in-my-backyard.

He says they support the resource extraction industry, but not at the environmental cost of Site C.

The Peace Valley Landowner Association appeared in court earlier this week to also argue that approval of the $8.8 billion hydroelectic project should be quashed.
