It was a record turnout and perfect conditions for the seventh annual Paddle for the Peace on July 14, 2012.
Hundreds of boats and close to a thousand people in total -- made up of residents of the Peace River region in Northeast BC and a number of visitors from around the province -- joined in the event to show their opposition to the proposed Site C Dam, which would flood the area the boaters traveled, between the communities of Hudson's Hope and Forth St. John. See the day's highlights, including a rousing speech from special guest Dr. David Suzuki, at the event which was co-hosted by Treaty 8 First Nations and the Peace Valley Environment Association.
