#3 BLS- Hydroelectric Dams

Millions of dollars in resource revenue are generated by the numerous hydroelectric dams on Barriere Lake Algonquin territory, but so far the indigenous community has not received a share and have yet to be connected to the grid. The Algonquins have refused to pay for hydroelectricity as it is both unaffordable and offensive considering the flooding caused by the dams, while Hydro Quebec insists that once connected, the community should foot the bill.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
