“Proposed SFPR freeway violates First Nations burial sites, lawsuit filed”

A video on the Media Co-op

“Only weeks after protesters packed up the South Fraser Protection Camp under threat of an injunction, the tables have been turned and freeway opponents have gone on the offensive and taken legal action to stop construction of the $1.2 billion South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR) freeway.

Bertha Williams of the Tsawwassen Band, Coast Salish Nation and William Burnstick, of the Cree Sioux First nations, are suing the B.C. Government to stop construction of the riverfront freeway through sacred burial sites and B.C.’s oldest and most important archaeological site find to date.
