Victoria Water District Rivers, Lakes and Streams Applications for Private Hydro Power Generation Development.

We are moving along with the list of these BC rivers, creeks and streams slated for privatized hydro power development. Additionally, with some 2000 of these waterways slated for power development, in which General Electric Corp is already involved in the background with a number, the likelihood of these applications, as matters move forward, falling under global, especially US corporate control is extremely high. Indeed, it is almost a certainty, as development occurs on these waterways, and given US burgeoning energy needs to sustain its bloated capitalist development, that these water application rights will be sold off to them, alienating them forever from Canadian control and utility, for recreational and simple aesthetic values, as well as any future economic development and sustainance needs, as we, as a distinct people and country, may decide.

It is not rocket science here, one and one continues to add up to two, and the nature of US Empire imperialist development continues to operate upon the entire world, and we will not be exempted from that pressure reality. We will idly stand by here and fall into chickenshit silence and obedience to the diktats of these US Empire needs, collaborating with our own capitalist marketplace conservatives and other US Empire Loyalist wannabes, in which case the inevitable will happen. OR we can begin to organize ourselves as a people to influence and put a stop to this dynamic being imposed upon us, both from within and in collaboration without.

I, personally, opt for this latter defence of the nation and "the peoples' interests" course. Clearly many others have yet to decide. Nobody said that life was forever going to be easy.
