Bute Inlet Private Power Proposal – Update


An excellent summary by Lannie Keller from Friends of Bute Inlet of the campaign to stop the largest proposed private hydro power project in Canadian history – GE and Plutonic Power’s plan to dam and divert 17 rivers at the head of Bute Inlet on the Sunshine Coast. Lannie updated the crowd at the “Take Back Our BC” event on Quadra Island on November 7, about the latest details of the 1,027 megawatt proposal (worth at least $20 Billion to the corporations involved) and the citizen campaign to save the ecologically diverse and visually spectacular Bute.

  1. It is hardly surprising anymore. The BC Liberal insanity is alive and well, and also very sneaky, as usual. Has everyone read, North Van Grumps, Blog Borg Collective? I am sure no-one will be too surprised by, who clinched the deal for Campbell’s corrupt sale of the BCR. Grumps has irrefutable proof. Campbell, must, absolutely be sent to prison.

    If we don’t get rid of Campbell right now. BC will become a polluted wasteland. The F.N People are fighting Campbell off again, regarding the Endbridge pipeline, and dirty oil tankers, from China.
