Community review process survey, Nov. 10th

Lardeau Valley Process 

As some of you may have heard, we are currently conducting a review process to ascertain what projects, programs or other ideas could help build the resiliency and economic viability of the Lardeau Valley. Wendy Booth, lead coordinator on this project, has met with many of you one on one and was recently at the LV Harvest Festival. 

As she continues her community engagement process, she has put together this survey. Please fill it in and share with your neighbors!

Friends of the Lardeau River Speaker Series, Peter Jonker presents “A year-round fish passage over Duncan Dam: A great idea?” Nov. 20th

Peter Jonker Three Presentation

Title of Talk:*/A Year-Round Fish Passage Over Duncan Dam: A Great Idea?/*

With a Canada-USA review of Columbia River Treaty terms now underway, 
the opportunity is ripe for seriously exploring large-scale projects to 
recover at least some of enormous ecological disruption that the 
Treaty-dams caused. For example, a determined effort, largely 
spearheaded by Indigenous peoples, is well underway to bring back to the 
upper reaches of the Columbia the ocean-going salmon that spawned here 
prior to the construction of obstructing dams. People who reside in the 
Kootenay and Duncan Lake area wonder whether the time is right also to 
lobby for a fish passage over our local Duncan Dam—the first dam to be 
constructed after the Treaty was signed in 1961.

In this slide-talk, Peter Jonker of Friends of the Lardeau River, will 
help us learn about ecological conditions that existed prior to Duncan 
Dam; in what ways the Dam profoundly disrupted these ecological 
conditions; how this affected key fish species; and, whether/how a 
year-round fish passage over the Duncan Dam would help reverse at least 
some of the damage that was done.

Peter is a retired University of Saskatchewan Adult-Education faculty 
member, resides near Duncan Dam, and is a Friends of the Lardeau River
Board Member.
