Hydro project destructive to environment

Elected leaders are unnecessarily destroying vast acreages of productive farmland and natural ecosystems of wildlife and plant habitat

The B.C. government’s decision to create another mega hydro project in northern B.C. is just another example of our elected leaders unnecessarily destroying vast acreages of productive farmland and natural ecosystems of wildlife and plant habitat for the appearance of creating green energy, while the main purpose for the power is for the use in the imminent production of LNG.

So not only are we about to permanently flood thousands of acres of productive farmland and ecosystem, we are doing so to produce an energy source that’s even dirtier than the energy created to produce that power. So in the end we’re left with a destroyed flooded valley, LNG for export, and a huge debt, with no guarantee of future demand or pricing.

Who’s great idea was this?

Hope, B.C.
