CRT consultation coming to Nakusp

The Columbia River Treaty information sessions return to Nakusp June 5 at the Arena Auditorium.

The Columbia River Treaty information sessions return to Nakusp June 5 at the Arena Auditorium. This time, the sessions are part of the provincial consultation, and will also aim to address some of the questions brought up during the last tour.

“In general, Basin residents said they want more information on several topics, including: the benefits and negative impacts of the current CRT; issues related to compensation; the feasibility of bringing salmon back to the upper Columbia River; climate change and how it may influence the CRT in the future; and scenarios for the future of the CRT,” said a press release from the CBT, which is supporting the information sessions, “They also want to learn more about how the current CRT operates, including flood control and downstream power benefits, as well as roles and responsibilities of key players, including the federal and provincial governments.”

Once again there will be an open house beginning in the afternoon, and free dinner in the evening before the consultation begins at 7 p.m.
