BC's Secret River Piracy

My good friend TomCat at PoliticsPlus has a great post that Canadians should read and be aware of:

BC's Secret River Piracy
A select few industrialists and their politician friends are withholding vital information about BC Hydro that could destroy the Crown corporation and send power prices soaring. Billions of dollars worth of electric power contracts are being negotiated in secret and supporting legislation passed through orders in council, with no public debate.

Premier Gordon Campbell is not allowing the public, or even municipal governments which most closely represent the public, to have input on any private hydroelectric developments, following passage of Bill 30. As a result, various stakeholder and citizen groups are now organizing their own meetings to examine the facts.


Dawg, it would have been perfectly OK to link directly to the article, instead of routing through me, with just a hat-tip link as standard courtesy. I'm surprised this didn't get more response here.

Dawg and Cat will team up again!! ;-)
