Fort Chipewyan Métis launch $3B dam lawsuit

See on Scoop.itFrackInformant

The Métis group says that two dams operated by BC Hydro in northern British Columbia have significantly reduced the flow of water in the Peace and Athabasca rivers, both of which feed the largest freshwater inland delta in the world.

 

They argue that the dams have had irreversible impacts on wildlife and plants in the region, preventing the Métis from continuing their way of life.
