As Canada and the United States prepare to negotiate the Columbia River Treaty, a series of conferences are being held to explore the ethical dimensions of the wrenching impacts of dams on the river and people. The conference series "One River, Ethics Matter" is based on the Columbia River Pastoral Letter and seeks to modernize the international river treaty based on stewardship and justice principles.
