49 Megawatts The Video

This is a video made by Brian Smith a kayak-er who lives in Squamish British Columbia.

Its quick 31 min documentary on the run of the river project in the Squamish region, in specific to the Ashlu River (Commonly pronounced Ashley).   It was interesting because of something called “Bill 30” aka the Ashlu Bill was implemented by the Federal Government and took away power from the local level.  The local region had voted collectively against it, but the decision was reversed with Bill 30.

Watch the Video:  Is it really possible to buy a river for $5000?  Is it about Green Power or Private Developers Taking public resources and Governments making a buck on taxes?  The main question should be weather it is bring value to the community, not if it is private or public.
