More Applications for Hydro Generation Development on BC Creeks, Rivers and Streams: New Westminster Water District.

Now, if you ain't getting depressed yet, by the scale of the sell-out of BCs precious waterways to private hydro power generating interests, you are a drop-dead capitalist marketplace cynic who doesn't give a fuck, unless there is a dollar sign attached to it, you ain't been paying attention and don't know what the hell is happening, or you're a brain dead git who doesn't give a rats ass for country, nature or future generations, period

I believe, if my memory serves, it was the late President Johnson of the US who warned that in the future, wars in North America could be fought over access to water . And if you can't see the warning in that and who it is directed at, then brain dead really is where you are at. And here, in the article by Peter Dimitrov below and the research into applications to develop power generation facilities on our rivers and creeks by private capitalist developers is the face of that "war" coming at us. For you have to know what set of bloated, over-developed, over-populated, diminishing water and power supply set of interests in the world is going to get the lion's share of power from this cynical development of a vital public resource and simple natural treasure. (The same ones as consume the bulk of the worlds oil supply and 2/3 of the world supply of illegal drugs.)

In time, where it is not already so, given the controlling hand and interest set that dominates NAFTA and the planned North Amerikan Union. and the preponderance of weight on the capitalist market scales, these companies are eventually going to wind up in the controlling portfolios of US corporatist interests, and along with them control of virtually all our waterways-, in addition to their already dominance over our national resources and other economic assets.

Unless.... Unless there is a sudden population awakening that occurs here and seizes the initiative and control over events away, first from this goddamn Campbell Lieberal Government and the corporate interests it serves, and secondly a goddamn economic and political system that is really anything but democratic, save in the most limited and cynical, money manipulated way. People in our communities need to be made aware of this information, and they need to be harangued and bolted awake, before everything that is theirs, or bloody well should be, is alienated and sold/stolen away from them. And movements of citizens need to be put in place, to educate and achieve this.

This Canada, do we really want that it should continue to belong to us and serve our national and people interest, or is it already lost because we just don't give a shit?

We will soon enough know.

Meanwhile, check out the planned developments for such as the Stave River, and say ZZ Creek, here in this New Westminster Water District, which is a huge district. Fuck man, you won't be able to go around scarcely a bend in these waterways without running into a goddamn private hydro power generation facility.

Fish? What fucking fish?

(By the by. Beauty fish I caught with my spanking new Pentax *ist DS, eh? Welll, out of a hundred or so pics that afternoon, sun coming through the trees. :-) Kokanee starting up Bridge Creek here, to spawn. They're in primo shape still, like light shining through bright red crystal. Catch the one just swimming away, as the one that grabs your eye is making his jump.)
