First Nations community members from Treaty 8 set out last Monday to travel by bus across Canada to bring attention to their legal challenge against BC Hydro’s massive Site C hydro dam already under construction in northeast British Columbia. The Federal Court of Appeal heard the case on Sept. 12 in Montreal.
