Hundreds of people - First Nations, Métis and non-Indigenous - out on canoes and kayaks to celebrate the beauty of the Peace River and show their determination to protect the land from the massive destruction that would be caused by the Site C dam.
This was the scene last weekend at the 11th annual Paddle for the Peace in northeast BC. The event brought together people from throughout the province, across the country, and indeed around the world. Our colleagues from KAIROS even brought an entire busload of paddlers from Vancouver Island and the lower mainland.
