Protesters jumping the gun: Fortis

Conservation groups dispute Fortis, Inc’s assessment of the proposed hydrolectric project in Belize. The head of Fortis Inc. says conservation groups are uniformed and jumping the gun when condemning a proposed hydro project in Central America. Probe International, a Toronto-based citizen’s group investigating the economic and environmental effects of Canadian aid and companies in developing countries, came out this week against a proposed hydro project in central Belize, claiming it will destroy one of the last undisturbed wildlife habitats in Central America.
