The Vancouver Sun is out with a report today, suggesting green energy projects represent a threat, to five of the ten most threatend rivers in this province.

The report comes from the Outdoor Recreation Council of BC and spokesman Mark Angelo says it underlines the public concern about a flood of private run-of-river power proposals, across the province. He says that concerns goes to the absence of a comprehensive provincial strategy, that considers the cumulative impacts of the projects.

It lists the Peace River…ranked sixth on this year’s list of threatened rivers…as one of the five, under a green power threat.

Not surprisingly, it cites the proposed Site-C dam as the local area threat and it lists farmland, wildlife habitat and archeological sites, downstream from Hudson’s Hope, as the potential victims.
