Proponents of the Site C Dam project scored a significant win this week with the granting of an injunction against a protest camp at the site, but the legal cases and negotiations continue.
Several legal cases against the project remain before the courts, even as protesters have packed up their camps site near Fort St. John.
Meanwhile President of Nanwakolas Council Dallas Smith told reporters at the Globe conference in Vancouver that First Nations voices will still be heard at the end of the day.
“As most First Nations people we want to see anything done in our territories done as sustainable as possible, and so all those studies will have to be done. And as injunctions and all those processes play out we’ll have to respond accordingly.”
The BC Supreme Court gave BC Hydro the injunction against the protest camp near Fort St. John, the crown corporation arguing it was costing millions because they were blocking clearing work.
