Protesters Vow to Stay at Canadian Dam After Court Rules Against Them

"A judge has ruled in favor of a Canadian power company seeking the legal authority to remove a camp of protesters at the site of a massive hydroelectric dam project in British Columbia.

One of the defendants named in the injunction said she plans to respect the court's decision, but other protesters have said they plan to remain where they are for now.

Once built, BC Hydro's Site C dam will flood an estimated 13,600 acres of fertile farmland, old growth forest, fish habitat, First Nations territory and archaeological sites to replace a portion of the Peace River with a 50-mile long reservoir."
