Now a threesome, we headed off to Hudson's Hope and the W.A.C. Bennett Dam.
We are given information on how turbines work as well as an overview of the BC power grid and the immensity of impact this dam and its companion the Peace River dam has. Also some of the geological history in the area and the fact that dinosaurs were once there. There is a brief mention of the displacement of mostly Aboriginal people when the giant lake was created. The current public issue is the latest dam project, Site C, a hot button topic that seems to out shine the pipeline controversies swirling throughout the province.
