Canada's hydro mess

Canada's hydro mess r1 ... View this e-mail in your browser. This week we bring you the story of Grand Forks, B.C.
Six months after flood waters swept through this small B.C. city, at least 28 downtown businesses are still closed.

Many locals and forestry experts are blaming rampant clearcutting for reducing nature's ability to protect residents from the hell of high waters, but the province insists all is well in the forests of southern British Columbia.

Reporter Judith Lavoie interviewed locals and experts to learn more and photographer Louis Bockner visited Grand Forks to capture the truth on the ground.

The resulting investigative photo essay is a great example of the inspiration behind our latest crazy idea: an annual print magazine.

Time and time again we’ve heard from readers who wish there was a print edition of The Narwhal because it’s just so nice to hold something real in your hands sometimes, isn’t it?

Well, here's your chance to make it possible! We launched a campaign to make this a reality just 36 hours ago and more than 30 readers have already contributed $3,000 to create a print edition of The Narwhal.

Want to make this dream a reality? If you give $50 or more today, we'll make sure you get a copy hot off the presses.

We know it's ambitious, but the whole notion of launching an independent, made-in-Canada, reader-funded investigative news site was a bit bananas from the outset — and you’ve made believers out of us, so here we go.

By Larry Pynn

We thought you might like another chance to read Larry Pynn's first article for The Narwhal. If the name sames familiar it's because up until a few months ago, Larry was the Vancouver Sun's environment reporter. Read more.
