Province Building Long-Term Equity Partnership with First Nations
Ontario is creating up to 100 new construction jobs in Northern Ontario while renewing its commitment to clean, renewable electricity with the New Post Creek hydroelectric project.
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and its partner, Coral Rapids Power, a wholly owned company of the Taykwa Tagamou Nation (TTN), are moving forward to develop approximately 25 megawatts (MW) of renewable hydroelectric power through the construction of a generating station on New Post Creek near its outlet to the Abitibi River.
The New Post Creek project builds on the expertise and capacity developed in recent Northern Ontario hydroelectric projects, such as the Lower Mattagami project. The new project will include construction of a generating station, a dam and powerhouse. Associated activities will include improvements to existing access roads, establishment of a construction site and installation of a transmission line.
This project supports Ontario’s goal to facilitate the participation of First Nation and Métis communities in renewable energy and transmission projects while building strong communities, powered by clean, reliable energy.

Unfortunately no matter how many boundaries and walls that have been broken it seems that prejudice is still in the air and people that are a minority still get treated poorly. A few years ago I traveled to a small town called Tennant Creek in Australia, where I was the minority for this first time. A town of approximately 3,500 people and mostly of aboriginal descent and having a bus load of 20 ignorant middle class travelers not having a clue on how they live their lives. We were there for only one night and we had lasted about 5 minutes in the only bar they had. Read the rest of this entry »

The first thing I thought of was the uncontrollable power these modern day snow-eating machines come equipped with. Read the rest of this entry »
