Blueberry River First Nations file claim challenging development in Northeast BC
Blueberry River First Nations, a Treaty 8 nation, filed a lawsuit challenging the cumulative impacts of the development of their traditional territory and the failure of BC to uphold promises made in Treaty 8. This lawsuit puts into question future development in the Northeast, including the Site C dam and natural gas extraction required to feed BC’s burgeoning LNG industry.
Blueberry is holding a press conference to outline their claim on Wednesday March 4 at 11:00 am - the Four Seasons Hotel, Vancouver.
