Dear Premier Campbell:
On 24 July 2009 I submitted a letter to the Environmental Assessment Office, expressing concerns with the proposed Glacier Howser Private Hydroelectric Project. Attached please find a copy of this submission.
An overwhelming majority of people in our area are against this project as evidenced by over 1100 people who showed up to a Environmental Assessment hearing held in Kaslo, in addition to over 450 people who attending a public meeting in Nelson. It is my understanding that the public hearings in the Lardeau Valley and Invermere were also, almost to a person, outspoken against this project. To my knowledge, of the many emails and letters I have received on this subject, only the proponent’s and a mining contractor’s were supportive.
