The West Moberly First Nations earlier this week sent British Columbia’s legislature coolers full of bull trout with elevated levels of mercury.
The delivery was not only proof of damage done by a dam built in 1968, but also a protest against BC Hydro starting construction this summer of a third dam on the Peace River.
“What we are trying to do is not make the problem worse,” said Roland Willson, chief of the West Moberly First Nations. “Only 30 per cent of the Peace River is left that we have access to, and they are going to flood half of that to build Site C. We want them to leave it alone.”
