Yellow stakes to be hammered into the ground to protest Site C Dam

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Yellow stake campaign will be launched on Tuesday at 10:00 am to protest the Site C Dam.

“We all have a stake in the future of the Peace River Valley and the Yellow Stakes campaign is an opportunity for people from far and wide to demonstrate their support for the protection of the Valley from the Site C dam.” Said Andrea Morison with the Peace Valley Environment Association.

On Tuesday, October 25th, landowners, First Nation leaders, others will be pounding yellow stakes into the ground.

These stakes represent “stakeholders” who are standing in solidarity with Ken and Arlene Boon, all the Peace Valley landowners and members of the West Moberly and Treaty 8 First Nations, according to a email.

Stakes are $100 and are eligible for a tax receipt. The stakes will then be hammered into the ground on the Boon farm with the name and city of the stakeholder purchaser.

100% of funds raised directly support Prophet River and West Moberly First Nations legal challenge to Protect the Peace River Valley.
