Keeyask hearing dates set

MANITOBA'S environmental watchdog has set dates for its public hearings into Manitoba Hydro's next big dam project.

The Keeyask generating station hearing schedule and information on public submissions were posted Friday on the Clean Environment Commission's website.

Hydro's plan calls for construction on the $6.2-billion Keeyask project to start next June. The 695-megawatt generating station is scheduled to go into service in 2019.

For the project to go forward, Hydro first needs to convince the CEC to recommend the province issue it an environmental licence.

Keeyask is also the subject of a wider hearing by the Public Utilities Board on whether the megaproject and its sister Conawapa station are needed. Dates have yet to be set.

The CEC recently recommended, albeit reluctantly, the province issue an environmental licence for Hydro's Bipole III transmission line project. The CEC was critical of Hydro for Hydro's handling of its environmental impact statement for the project.

The province issued a licence for Bipole III earlier this month, but under 68 conditions such as extensive wildlife monitoring and preservation of as much wetland, forest and farmland as possible. The transmission line, to extend 1,400 kilometres, has raised the ire of farmers, aboriginal people and others who say the project is too expensive and needlessly intrudes on their lives.

Exhibit on gay persecution

THE Rainbow Resource Centre will be hosting a powerful travelling exhibit on Nazi persecution of gays from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum from Aug. 28 to Sept. 11.

The exhibit, located at 170 Scott St., will be open to the public from 1-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 1-4 p.m. Friday through Sunday, excluding the Labour Day holiday weekend.

"The Rainbow Resource Centre is proud and honoured to bring this important historical exhibit to Manitoba," Rainbow Resource Centre president Matt Wiebe said Friday. He said the exhibit contains a "a unique collection of documentation and photos.

"It is an opportunity to explore a heart-wrenching time of human history that can never be forgotten."

The Rainbow Resource Centre (RRC) is Manitoba's not-for-profit community organization that provides support and resources to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and two-spirit, intersex, queer, questioning and ally (LGBTT*) communities and families by providing education, outreach services, counselling and other programs. …
