The Fight For Bala

The proposed Bala Falls hydroelectric plant is more than a misstep; it is an economic, environmental and moral injustice. It is a democratic farce when an overwhelming majority oppose a project, yet get told, "It's a done deal." It is the government's duty to consult with the Wahta Mohawks, who have publicly challenged the government to abide by its own laws, yet they continue to be disrespected.
