The Peace Valley Environment Association was formed in 1975 to counter the proposal by BC Hydro and Power Authority to build the Site C dam and power station on the Peace River, 18km upstream from Taylor and 6.5km southwest of Fort St. John, BC.
PVEA will continue to work to ensure that the court of public opinion against Site C is loud and clear! Our organization works collaboratively with a number of other groups including Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y), BC Wilderness Committee, Sierra Club BC, Amnesty International and Treaty 8 Tribal Association. Additionally, funding supported has been gratefully received from West Coast Environmental Law’s Environmental Dispute Resolution Fund, Vancouver Foundation, Y2Y, BC Women’s Institute and many generous individuals.
Site C is not in the best interests of British Columbians for a multitude of reasons ranging form economic, social, cultural and environmental. It will result in an oversupply of power for many years and will cost BC Hydro ratepayers billions of dollars. If and when additional power sources are required in the province, there are many better and less expensive alternatives.
