Alberta Peace River Dam Project Cancelled By TransAlta

April 1, 2015

Wild Lands Advocate update, April 2015, by Carolyn Campbell

Alberta’s Peace River Valley received an early Valentine’s Day present this year. On January 16, TransAlta Corporation withdrew its application to the Alberta Utilities Commission for a nine year extension of its Dunvegan Hydroelectric Project’s approved construction deadline date. TransAlta cited substantial information requests from stakeholders, a potentially long and costly hearing process, and unfavourable project economics as reasons for its decision.

With rare exception cattle ranchers have been the best of guardians of the land entrusted to them. May we continue to be conscientious caretakers of this precious resource and hand it on to another generation unspoiled.
