Letters: Is it worth fixing?

Dam at Jordan River could be drained says letter writer

Re: Jordan residents may be forced to move.

This is a typical bullying tactic by a greedy corporation. Because there is only 11 properties at stake here, of course it is more reasonable to buy them out and milk all the power until the dam fails.

But in Campbell River, it is not feasible to move an entire city, so seismic upgrades are required.

Why don’t they just drain the dam like the other one up island and voila, the apparent risk is gone.

The residents way of life and livelihood is way more important than a few measly dollars that is made from a decrepit dam that is falling apart. If it is not worth fixing and upgrading, then just deactivate it!
