This Area may soon Disappear, if not for Your Help!

A proposed HydroElectric development will drastically change High Falls on the Grassy River. The scenic beauty of these rapids and waterfall, only 23 km from downtown Timmins, will be lost forever as the river flow is forced into a large pipe to feed the turbine and generator. The falls, as we now know it, will cease to exist. The preliminary work has already started as an environmental screening process is now happening. Public input will be sought probably in early Spring 2008 or 2009 or 2010 or 2011 or 2012 - Who knows ?

We visit the heated meeting in Pitt Meadows that had to be shut down by the fire marshall and police. And another emotionally-charged affair in downtown Vancouver as hundreds marched to SFU's Work Centre for Dialogue--where private power promoters were meeting inside--to send a message that BC is a public power province.
