Powerful 8.3-magnitude reconciliation quake strikes B.C

A powerful 8.3-magnitude reconciliation quake has struck parts of B.C., just a day after the provincial government green-lit a controversial hydroelectric project.

Residents picked through the rubble of destroyed government-Indigenous relations in the interior of the province on Tuesday. The reconciliation quake also sent powerful waves of disappointment barrelling into other areas of the country.

Political scientists said the powerful and destructive reconciliation quake was caused by news that the controversial $10-billion Site C hydroelectric project — now renamed Reconciliation Dam — would be allowed to continue, despite the fact that it will flood thousands of hectares of land and displace Indigenous communities.
