BC Citizens for Public Power
BC Citizens for Public Power (BCCPP) is a grassroots, advocacy organization established to give voice to British Columbians' demand that the province's power generation system remain in public hands.

Save Our Rivers Society
We as a population in BC face a historic challenge. All through time our rivers have flowed freely. Our provincial government is quietly giving away rights to our public rivers for private power production to some of the world's biggest corporations.

West Kootenay Eco Society
West Kootenay EcoSociety Mission Statement

To promote ecologically and socially sound communities while protecting species and ecosystems in the Southern Columbia Mountains ecoregion.

Private Power Watch
In the fall of 2002, the British Columbia government released the BC Energy Plan. As part of this plan, BC Hydro, our publicly owned electric utility, is restricted from developing new generation facilities other than those in which it has already made significant investments. Furthermore, the BC Energy Plan instructs BC Hydro to acquire new supplies from the private sector. According to the Plan, 50% of new electricity needs are to come from conservation; however, much of the focus to date has been on developing new privately owned generating facilities.

Much has been written about the potential effects of the energy plan on electrical rates and the future of our publicly owned electrical utility; however, most British Columbians are still unaware of the extent of private hydro power development, the potential environmental consequences of this development, and the loss of sovereign control of our rivers.

Valhalla Wilderness Society
The Valhalla Wilderness Society was founded in 1975, in the small village of New Denver, British Columbia, Canada. It started as a group of local residents who wanted to save the forested slopes of the Valhalla Range in southeastern B.C. from logging. After an intensive eight-year campaign, Valhalla Provincial Park was won.

Groupe Axor Inc
The corporate daddy of Purcell Green Power, the company that pretends to be the "local" developer of the Glacier/Howser Creek IPP. The Purcell Green Power website is a classic example of pretending to have a website. There is little information - everytime I go there, there is even less than the time before.
