Stand Up for BC’s Water

The Upper Pitt River Valley is threatened with a proposed private power project. Northwest Cascade Power intends to divert significant amounts of water from sensitive wildlife habitat involving blasting, road building, dam construction, pipelines and transmission lines.

    Together we, the people of BC, can stop this unnecessary destruction.

Public hearings are being held regarding the application to remove land from Pinecone Burke Provincial Park for a transmission line related to this private power project. These hearings are a pivotal opportunity to intercept the destruction and theft of our public resources.
