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 ?

The Romaine River Located in Quebec

Another Group in Quebec Fighting to Save a River



Alliance Romaine
Safeguarding the future of the Romaine River

Please join us in asking Quebec to protect its natural heritage! Let’s say “No thanks!” to more hydroelectricity and save the Romaine River.

The Romaine River, situated north of the municipality of Havre-Saint-Pierre in Basse-Cote-Nord, is one of Qu├ębec’s last large undammed rivers. Hydro-Quebec plans on building a 1550 MW hydroelectric complex composed of four dams which would produce close to 8 TWh of electricity per year.

  1. I would like to know if any people, habitations or villages are to be expropriated or evicted in order to build this project. Also, are there any sacred grounds or long standing hunting grounds to be affected. Please answer to; davidpayant@gmail.com

    Your best bet would be to go to the http://allianceromaine.wordpress.com website and ask the question
