BC rivers under threat

In BC, the new push toward green power isn't green. I'm increasingly horrified by what I'm learning. Over 500 different rivers have been proposed for significant water diversion, including some with significant salmon runs and in areas of cultural significance for First Nations peoples. Read more at Save Our Rivers, the Ashlu River site (with a picture here of the environmentally sound construction site), or maybe Hydro Facts BC; don't expect a neutral perspective, though.

Admittedly I'm always distrustful when an MLA speaks on camera, and one shows up on this video, but oh, oh, it all makes my stomach hurt so much....
