Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Norm Farrell October 16, 2020

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s home edition, NOT broadcast live from CFUV Radio, but emanating live-to-tape on this date, October 16th, 2020.

While defending his government’s continuation of Site-C in last week’s leadership debate, Premier John Horgan claimed the megadam was a way to move B.C.’s “green clean energy” into the future. But what are the ecological costs of this project; and just how green is hydro power generally? The North American Megadam Resistance Alliance says, “These megadams destroy rivers and forests and are a climate and social justice disaster.”

Norm Farrell is a writer and publisher of In-Sights.ca, a journal “covering Canadian public affairs with a focus on British Columbia…” [and] “…exploring political and economic issues.” Norm attended the NAMRA sponsored, ‘Canada‚Äôs Sinking Site C Megadam Webinar‘ Wednesday.

Today, Norm Farrell and the politics, impacts, and BIG money behind Site-C.
