Saulteau First Nations not in agreement with Hackney Hills Wind Project in BC Hydro’s call for "Clean Power"

Full Press Release

Skull Formation

[March 17 2010 Media Release] On March 11, 2010 BC Hydro posted an update to their website in regards to the first set of Electricity Purchase Agreements awarded under the Clean Power Call. Nineteen projects were awarded electricity purchase agreements. The projects are intended to provide a step toward building a “clean energy powerhouse here in BC.” Further to these agreements, and currently under consideration by the BC Bas Relief PetroglyphUtilities Commission, is the Hackney Hills Wind Project. The Saulteau First Nations are not in agreement with the project as it threatens a significant First Nations cultural heritage site. “In the province’s bid to supply the future energy needs they are following a process that results in the destruction of sacred sites,” states Chief Harley Davis. The Saulteau First Nations believe that development of these sacred mountains will result in a loss of aboriginal culture and history for future generations. “The preservation of the large stone skull monument on the sacred mountain is representative of how the land and resources could be used or abused,” notes elder Jack Davis. “The cultural impacts and potential infringement of rights could result in economic and social problems for generations if the project were to proceed at this location.”
