Julian Napoleon speaks powerfully and with authority. I agree with him....the North East has been "sacrificed" it seems. We are ALL collateral damage because of this damn dam. The "powers" that created this mess will all be walking away from the debris...if they haven't already....AKA....Christy Clark, Gordon Campbell... yet we the people of the Peace will be the "damaged" remains of a project gone wrong. Shameful and appalling on so many levels.
It doesn't help when you are asking the people who are causing the problem to give you a remedy for it.
Truth is being spoken here. Please watch and then act.
Thank you for this important video. We are all treaty people. Educate yourself and stand with the West Moberly First Nation people. <3
If we needed this dam all of us would gain including first nations who would appreciate the electricity in there homes But we dont need it and it is just a very distructive project that will cost our grandchildren for there whole lifetime then there is the enviromental dmage that can never be repaired plus the loss of that valuable farmland There has got to be a way to stop thisawful waste and I hope someone is succesful
The sole purpose behind the continuation of Site C was Horgan and Eby's commitment to pay off BCNDP "James Gang" insiders and lobbyists. This is a massive boondoggle which will never be profitable. It needs to be stopped now.
No more sacrifice zones! We are all connected ... our treatment of the water and land, and our respect for Treaty and continuity of livelihood rights are connected. Thank you for your work to protect land and water. Thank you for this excellent explanation of the devastation of another unnecessary mega-project
can't build a dam on shale, can't steal land from the indigenous elders and families, and we don't need the power unless you want to frack, mine, and oil/gas destruction
Thank you for this video. Thank you for reminding us that we, non First Nations peoples, we too are part of this treaty. Thank you to the people still fighting. It breaks my heart the ongoing disrespect and disregard by this government, and BC Hydro for Treaty 8, for valuable and irreplaceable farm land, the environmental consequences and the insurmountable debt load the citizens of this province are being saddled with.
If you have an opportunity to see a documentary entitled "Fractured Lands", be sure to do so. It shows how the treaty has been violated in the most egregious ways. The image of the indigenous women cutting fish open to look for tumours is emblazoned on my brain. The water, the land, the animals, the air, and the people have been poisoned by the fracking industry. It makes me weep. What the indigenous people of Canada have endured and continue to endure is the greatest shame. We must work for truth and justice. Reconciliation implies that both sides need to give up something. I think the indigenous people don't owe us a thing. But we owe them justice and reparations.

Thank you for this clear message as to why the Peace must be protected, and what is truly at stake in terms of reconciliation.
Building on shale in fracking country; how seeeensible
That's enough job crushing for a decade or so. If the do-gooders ran Canada we would all be living in poverty. So shut it.
If I had written that,I would want to be anonymous too. How shamefull
What a great video. Some of the statements give me goosebumps because they are so true and so profound.
