Radio Interview - Kokish River private hydro power project

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

This is a Radio Interview with Wilderness Committee Policy Director Gwen Barlee and Port McNeil Mayor Gerry Furney about the proposed Kokish River private hydro-power project on northern Vancouver Island. 

The Kokish is a fish-rich river and Barlee argues that a hydro-power project should not be allowed as it will destroy valuable fish habitat and that private hydro power plants on other rivers have killed fish. A construction company has begun hiring workers to build the project, even though the federal Department of Fisheries has yet to approve it. Mayor Furney supports the project.
