On May 30-31 2019, Selkirk College will be hosting the sixth annual international ethics conference at the confluence of the Kootenay and Columbia River at the college campus in Castlegar, BC.
The 2019 One River, Ethics Matter conference will explore remedial options through respectful dialogue and further public education specifically regarding the Columbia River Treaty by the following considerations:
adding a third Treaty purpose co-equal to existing Treaty purposes of hydropower and flood control, and
new approaches to ethical governance of the river that strengthen river and community resiliency, restore salmon and other fisheries,
and right historic wrongs done to the Upper Columbia River region, indigenous peoples, and other citizens of the watershed.
