Nearly 70 years after it went into operation, the John Hart Generating Station at Campbell River is getting more than a billion dollars in seismic and other upgrades. Global TV news takes an in-depth look at the project. Also last week, we announced plans for agricultural mitigation and compensation around the Site C Clean Energy project, and in the wake of an Amnesty International report on Site C, our CEO took time to explain how we've consulted with First Nations on the project since 2007.
