Breaching the Peace: The Site C Dam and a Valley's Stand Against Big Hydro

Copertina anteriore
On Point Press, 2018 - 295 pagine
"Breaching the Peace tells the story of the ordinary citizens who stood up to the most expensive megaproject in BC history and the government-sanctioned bullying that propelled it forward. Starting in 2013, journalist Sarah Cox travelled to the Peace River Valley to talk to locals about the Site C dam and BC Hydro's claim that the clean energy project was urgently needed. She discovered farmers, First Nations, and scientists caught up in a modern-day David and Goliath battle to save the valley, their farms, and traditional lands from wholesale destruction. Told in frank and moving prose, their stories stand as a much-needed cautionary tale at a time when concerns about global warming have helped justify a renaissance of environmentally irresponsible hydro megaprojects around the world."--Provided by publisher.
