ON CANADIAN TV
After months of investigation, CBC-TV's current
affairs program, Disclosure, will air its report on
Belize's proposed Chalillo dam on Tuesday, April 2,
at 9 p.m. "Paradise be dammed," investigates the
Chalillo dam controversy and the Canadian players
behind it.


To research and film the report, the "Paradise be
dammed" team went to Belize's Macal River Valley
and met with Belize officials, proponents and critics
of the dam. The team also interviewed Fortis CEO
Stanley Marshall, AMEC VP David Paterson,
CIDA official Robert Derouin, Probe International's
Gráinne Ryder, Belize Zoo's Sharon Matola, and
Ambrose Tillet, a former executive with Belize Electricity.

Who are you? Why is there such a push from a Canadian company?

we have so many canadian posters...maybe someone will try to watch it and give us a summary??

in elbert greer's book, he mentions that the area in question is one of the last breeding areas for both the scarlet macaw and the howler monkey. he said if the dam goes thru, the populations of these species (and who know what others) will be vertually wiped out in that area.
