Hydro nixes power for Seymour Arm

Despite significant prep work, which included a referendum of Seymour Arm citizens, BC Hydro has advised the Columbia Shuswap Regional District they have put the electrification plans for the small community on hold. They indicate this is part of a budgetary reduction program. CSRD members are hopeful approval for the electrification project will move forward in future years.

“It’s deeply disappointing,” said director Larry Morgan, from the North Shuswap. “But there are some indications this project will be resurrected down the road.”
