Howser in Peril : Directed by Tom Prior : Produced by Carl Jacks
Right now the BC Government is poised to transfer public ownership rights to hundreds of wild and scenic waterways. This could mean the building of hundreds of Independent Power Projects (IPPs) in watersheds throughout the province, without an adequate review of the environmental or community impacts. This will result in incalculable damage to wild and scenic rivers do through road building, habitat destruction, water-diversion and a maze of new power transmission lines.
Howser in Peril documents the efforts of a concerned local citizen who set out to explore the endangered Howser and Glacier Creek Valleys located in the Purcell Mountain Range north of Kaslo, BC. The idea of loosing this pristine region to a private corporation is now set to become a reality as this massive project is currently waiting for final approval.
Let this film inspire yourself to become further educated on this issue and then work to notify the public! This has become a subject far grander in nature than just the damming of our BC Rivers and streams to generate more electricity. Read between the lines my friends. BC still has a healthy, intact supply of what many countries to the south of us don't. These are our remaining freshwater reserves and very few people have ever had private control over them - At least up until now...
