The New Manitoba Hydro Board is Being Criticized for Lacking Northern Representation.



The Wilderness Committees Eric Reder says a complete lack of representation from Northern Manitoba and Indigenous Communities directly affected by much of the companies work means the new board announced Friday will put economics and business over environment and community.  He explains the operations of Manitoba Hydro affect the people living in the north to a greater proportion in their daily lives than it affects people in the south and we have a large impact to communities in the north historically and going forward  he says Manitoba Hydro is an essential component of us getting a handle on our climate chaos and lowering fossil fuel use but it has to be done right and in a just way for northern communities.


Reder adds with the immense destruction to the environment and way of life of the Indigenous people that call the territory home it is concerning that the committee seems to be predominantly urban and business oriented.
