In the Fall term, 2008, a seminar of UBC Geography students conducted a class project on the proposed Site C dam on the Peace River. After researching various aspects of the proposal and the history of the Peace River, they wrote research reports, prepared web copy, gathered photographs and built a website. This is how they described their project: “The Peace River is distant from us in so many ways. None of us have seen it. But its potential development affects us all. We all need to think about this river and this proposal. This is our attempt to think, to see the river.”
