here is a link to the net totals for the last 10 years, i thinks this is important to keep an eye on when saying yes or no to these projects, as i would not want to support coal by saying no to r o r projectshttp://www.bcstats.gov.bc.ca/data/bus_stat/busind/trade/trade-elec.asp
Rivers of Riches article
Comment by norberto on 19th February 2009
Let me point to an excellent article on Run of the River projects at the Watershed Sentinel website. Lots of details, very well researched. You may download here:

http://www.watershedsentinel.ca/documents/FeaturedArts/River%20of%20Riches.htm

There are two versions of this article, the short version for the magazine and a longer version with financial details and a bibliography. This article was sponsored by FOCI !
