Run of River and Freedom of Information

Here's a link to an article publicizing the results of Run of River power based on information obtained via a Freedom of Information request.  To summarize, Run of River compromises fish and fish habitat.  Who could've predicted that?  Hundreds of dead fish on multiple occasions is unacceptable.  Let's hope DFO has the gumption to nix all future Run of River projects in anadromous fish habitat.  Crashing wild fish numbers and artificially enhanced numbers via hatchery production are both wrong.  Fix the problem, not the symptoms.

Please email the contacts listed in my previous post before the DFO makes their decision on the Kokish River.  Their decision is due to come down any day so write fast.
