After several years of protest, meetings and incredible white water paddling festivals on the Slave River in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories, the official announcement regarding the proposed dam was unveiled.  There will be no dam on the Slave!  We here at Level Six would like to thank the Fort Smith Paddling Club (http://www.fskayak.webs.com/) for all their hard work to save the river and organize the Slave River Paddlefest. The work the club has done will ensure years of world class play boating for paddlers all over the world.

Check out this great video put together by Jacqui Whitehead regarding the issues of the dam and some great footage of the river.
