A demonstration is planned for tomorrow (Friday September 1 at 11 am) now that construction equipment has arrived onsite to begin work on a hydroelectric dam at Bala Falls, which is located two hours north of Toronto.
The 4.5 megawatt project would be located where Lake Muskoka flows into Moon River.
Yesterday, the Gravenhurst Banner reported, "Protesters gathered on the bridge at Bala Falls today as part of a series of protests against a controversial hydro project. The group of protesters wearing red t-shirts and waving red and white placards took a stand against the controversial construction that has begun by Swift River Energy Ltd. Included in the messages on the red and white signs being waved by protesters encourage dialing Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, complete with phone number. Protests are expected to continue at least throughout the week."
