When the wac bennet dam was made it flooded all the way back to mackenzie forming williston lake. ive seen some before pics but none with todays quality imagery. ive been fishing on williston - unbelievable fishin. Site C is definitely going to be a nightmare as it is in somebodys backyard . Makes me wanna go sit on the rocks and fish at Hudson Hope. Grrrt PICS

ya site C is gonna flood out alot of peoples properties, the highway will have to be rerouted in several areas. It is kind of a shame.
If site C does go though I wanna get on that project - i think it would be very cool - not sure where they would put all the workers tho - this area is tight of accommodations

a video showing what would be flooded by the dam

good video on the dam . canada sells the states 3.8 billion worth of electricity then we buy it back during our peak times. go figure. the north is great and no matter what corner of the province you will find someone to drink beer n wheel trucks
