Quadra is one of the many communities on Vancouver Island taking part in the Justice for the Peace Tour in last week of March. Like the other events, our coffee house will be a fundraiser for the legal costs of the West Moberley and Prophet River First Nations and the Peace River Landowners Association.

Join us for an evening of excellent and diverse music, beautiful images of the threatened Peace River Valley, an inspiring presentation, scrumptious desserts and of course teas and coffee.

This is an opportunity to hear from Ken and Arlene Boon, third generation farmers whose land and home overlook the Peace River. Their home and land will be expropriated and flooded by BC Hydro should the mega dam project go forward. Ken will share his experiences in fighting the Site C dam over the past 20 years. They have been involved in many forms of opposition to Site C including the Environmental Assessment process, legal challenges to the dam, the Yellow Stake in the Peace fundraising campaign for First Nations Court challenges, and various other forms of peaceful protest.

All this is happening at the Community Centre, on Saturday, March 24. Doors open at 7. Admission by donation.

The First Nations are going to court in July asking for an injunction to stop construction until their civil action for infringement of Treaty 8 rights has been heard.

Come out and support the movement to stop the Site C dam. See you there.
