Leading lemmings to a bad end

TO THE EDITOR

Plans leading to the decommissioning of our local dams and hydros are proceeding. This action will result in the loss of hydro income and the destruction of this local, renewable energy resource. The hydros contribute to the city general budget and the electric utility budget. This income benefits both electric ratepayers and local taxpayers. With dam destruction, this economic benefit to the community will be gone forever!

As hydro decommissioning moves forward, watch for an increase in local electric rates.

Keep in mind that "everyone else is doing it" is not a valid argument for any course of action. This reasoning leads a lot of lemmings to a bad end!
