Water Exports - Peace River - Weatherford Project.

The Conservative Government has a fully mechanical engineered project sitting on their shelf from the 1980s.  It is as valid today as when it was paid for.

This is the Weatherford project, the design being to move up to 2/3rds of the flow of the Peace River into the USA! 

The project has 8 large electrical lift stations in it, each one using the power of a large city.  This is immense and under this Government's direction will be handled by private industry and paid for by the Alberta Taxpayers.

For those of  you in southern Alberta; the St. Mary's system and involved in the Western Irrigation District; Did you sign up for this?

Mike Cardinal reworked the Western Irrigation board while he was selling off Crown Grazing Lands on the East Slope of the Rockies to the Agra Food Industry.  Rules of water ownership run First in Line, First in Time and these properties are where all of our ground water used for drinking originates!

This was a huge change to the board and restricted voting rights to those people only with property on the St Marys shore.
