MOBERLY, B.C. – On Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 the discussions taking place between the B.C. government and the West Moberly First Nations regarding the Site C dam have ended. A 120-day trial has been scheduled to begin on March 2022.
According to the First Nations, the Horgan Government is expected to defend the decision made by Christy Clark’s BC Liberal Government in 2014 to approve Site C, which the West Moberly says infringed Treaty 8.
West Moberly First Nations Chief Willson said, “We can’t disclose anything confidential from the discussions with BC, but I can assure you that there are dark days ahead for Site C. Watch the numbers climb and the dates slip. Wait for the excuses and the distractions”.
