Line drawn in forests

Wed Sep 26 2007

MANITOBA Hydro announced Tuesday that it has caved in and will waste hundreds of millions of dollars building a transmission line down the west, rather than east side, of Manitoba in order to appease Premier Gary Doer’s ambition to be seen as conservationist.

Some east side aboriginal leaders vowed they would fight the decision, which serves affluent environmentalists at the expense of impoverished First Nations. They fear, however, that without the resources that can be mustered by the government and environmental lobbies, they will be unable to ensure that common sense prevails. Manitobans should see that their own interests are served by supporting the chiefs’ cause.
