BC Hydro mum on indigenous rights violations

BC Hydro Corp. claims its latest annual report complies with internationally recognized human rights disclosure standards. But, when it comes to disclosing the state of BC Hydro's relationship with aboriginal communities, that claim doesn't appear to be entirely true. That's what University of Victoria professional writing students Kim Belanger, Emma Hamilton, Jessica Lampard, Tia Low and Kadie Smith revealed today, in an article published in The Tyee. That article is the result of one of several investigations undertaken by students this past semester as part of the writing department's advanced journalism course.

Congrats to your students, but congrats to you as well for your essay on new FOI policy. Certainly worth noting as an intelligent warning that FOI is an endangered species, albeit by accident.
