Add comment on:Fishermen Vote to Support Klamath Dam Removal, Oppose Arnold's Water Bond
The Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen's Associations today announced their vote to support Klamath dam removal. They also announced their opposition to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's $11.1 billion water bond, a pork festival that will lead to the construction of the peripheral canal and more dams. Schwarzenegger, the worst Governor for fish and the environment in California history, cynically manipulated the water bond measure to include $250 million for Klamath dam removal in an attempt to trade dam removal on one river system for two new dams and a peripheral canal on another river system. Photo: Governor Schwarzenegger held a press conference on Friday to discuss the passage of a water package that will clear the path to the construction of a peripheral canal and more dams.
