Damming The Peace: The Hidden Costs of the Site C Dam- A discussion with Wendy Holm
July 10, 2018 to July 19, 2018
Chapter members of The Council of Canadians Pacific Region welcome Author Wendy Holm to discuss her new book Damming The Peace: The Hidden Costs of the Site C Dam.
On-going opposition by landowners, legal challenges by First Nations, cost over-runs and unstable geological conditions all indicate that the future of B.C.'s most expensive infrastructure project is still in question. The B.C. government decided to continue the Site C Dam in December 2017, but large questions remain about the estimates of the project's costs and it's long-term economic viability.
Agrologist Wendy Holm testified during the hearings on Site C, and continues to oppose the project. From her perspective, preserving this prime horticultural land outweighs any argument about our province's need for increased energy. She has observed that the Peace River Valley is the only large tract of land that could expand BC's horticultural production and that it rivals the Fraser Valley for its soils and microclimate.
Please join us at one of these six events and spread the world to friends, family and comrades who are concerned about the reckless project!
