1) OPPOSITION TO SITE C DAM KEEPS GROWING

By Kimball Cariou, Vancouver

            Preparatory work for the controversial Site C dam in northern BC is underway, but opposition to the project is also growing, including a camp by First Nations members and other local residents at the historic site of Rocky Mountain Fort. This location on the west side of the Peace River was chosen by Alexander Mackenzie as British Columbia’s first trading post. It’s on the traditional territory of Treaty 8 First Nations, who are determined to defend their lands from flooding as BC Hydro seeks to expand what many consider to be completely unnecessary power production.

 

            Along with expanded liquid natural gas exports and the relentless expansion of ports in the Lower Mainland, Site C is one of the favourite projects of Premier Christy Clark’s Liberal government. These all involve massive injections of provincial funds or major tax breaks for corporations, as part of a strategy to make BC even more dependent on exports of unprocessed resources.                                                                        

. . . .

2) STOP SITE C, URGE B.C. COMMUNISTS

The BC Provincial Executive of the Communist Party has issued the following statement, urging the provincial government and BC Hydro to cancel the Site C dam project.

            The Communist Party of BC expresses our full solidarity with the growing movement to halt the destructive, expensive and unnecessary Site C dam project on the Peace River. We urge BC Hydro and the provincial government to cease all preparatory work for this project, and to drop legal proceedings and threats against those who are using their democratic rights to express their opposition to Site C.

 

            The facts about this project are very clear, starting with the truth that the federal and provincial governments have failed in their responsibility to uphold the terms of Treaty 8, which promised the signatory First Nations across a vast area of Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories that they would be able to continue their traditional practices of hunting, trapping, fishing, and collecting medicinal plants “for as long as the sun shines, the rivers flow and the grass grows.” . . .

 

3) SCABS: THE SECRET INGREDIENT AT COVERED BRIDGE

By Gabriel Jarman

            Ryan Albright, President of Covered Bridge Chips, has a reputation for being confrontational. In August of last year, the New Brunswick Employment and Labour Board ruled Albright had violated the province’s labour law for threatening the workers during their organizing drive.

 

            The Board’s written decision describes Albright “storming out” of a mediation session after telling a UFCW representative “Screw you and your f**king union.”

 

            Today Albright is again claiming he will give his workers what they want – but not in a union environment.

 

            Members of the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1288P at the Covered Bridge potato chip plant near Hartland, New Brunswick, have been in a legal strike position since June 2015. They walked out on January 5. At issue is securing a first collective agreement, which guarantees seniority, wages and working conditions in the plant. . . . .
