Environmentalist David Suzuki and Grand Chief Stewart Phillip are flying to Fort St. John to join protestors at the Site C construction site.
According to an article from the Globe and Mail, the two were traveling to Fort St. John on Monday and expected to join protestors at the site of the dam on Tuesday.
According to the paper, the two are expected to drop in by helicopter at the Rocky Mountain Fort Camp located on the north bank of the Peace River. The remote area was scheduled to be logged last week, but protestors setup camp at the historic site.
Protestors have been camped at the remote site since early in the new year and say they won’t leave until construction stops.
We will update this story as more information becomes available.
