Impacts of Hydro-Quebec’s megadams on Pessamit Cree lands

In 2016, the Pessamit First Nation filed a motion to intervene in the regulatory proceedings involving the Northern Pass transmission corridor proposed for New Hampshire in the U.S. Eventually, the state’s highest court denied permission for the corridor.

The Pessamit legal filing, made under oath in a legal proceeding, provides an interesting insight into how Hydro-Quebec exploits land and water for its destructive, industrial scale megadam operations.
