12th Annual Paddle for the Peace River Valley

Vancouver Unitarians in Solidarity with Treaty 8 First Nations and Farmers in the Peace River Valley

On July 8th, 2017, several members of the congregation attended Paddle for the Peace –Vancouver in Vanier Park, Kitsilano, to support the 12th Annual Paddle for the Peace celebration in the beautiful Peace River Valley, in northeastern British Columbia.

The Vanier Park event provided an opportunity for Metro Vancouver residents to show solidarity with Treaty 8 First Nations and farmers opposed to the Site C Dam — an $8 billion project that would flood an 80 kilometre stretch of the Peace River Valley.
